Our connection to Packbags is a perfect example of Amsterdam's tight-knit entrepreneur community and small-town feel. We met someone from Packbags at a little neighborhood cheese shop and struck up a conversation, and then just a few months later, they were in our shop.

Packbags is committed to producing its bags in Europe, using materials from Europe. You can feel just as good about the quality of Packbags as you can about how they're made. Each product is handmade by artisans in Amsterdam using methods to minimize ecological impacts. Packbags' design principles are to be modular, allowing you to update, repair, or reassemble your bags to your heart's content, and to be circular, focusing on refurbishing, reusing, and recycling.
