The Bags We Carry

In 1990, after 18 years of designing and making bags at night and on the weekends, Tom opened his first shop in Santa Cruz and founded TOM BIHN. Today there are almost 50 of us working here. To us, it’s a number that means a lot. That’s a lot of steady growth and hard work over the years. We’re proud of our designs. We’re proud of using the best materials we can find or have made for us. And we’re proud that we’re creating careers.

You share with us how you use your bags—in the Forums, on Facebook, via Insatgram and Twitter. It’s inspiring, validating, and a learning experience: you figure out ways to use bags and accessories that we, as the designers, didn’t even think of.

So, we thought we’d make a video that shows you how we use our bags. You can watch it below, and, as always: let us know what you think!

We're the TOM BIHN crew: we design bags, make bags, ship bags, and answer questions about bags. Oh, and we collaborate on blog posts, too.

    I liked the video — it is cool to see that the makers of the bags are as passionate as the customers!
