About Us

The story behind our business is a simple one

The story behind our business is a simple one - running through the airport trying to catch a connecting flight, the strap to my laptop bag broke. After searching for a new bag and not finding one that wasn't cheaply constructed or made in the US, I thought I could do better. In college, I had brought a refurbished sewing machine. It was packed away and forgotten, until one day I decided to make a bag that was durable and well-constructed, and 1820 Bag Co was born.

Over time, I expanded to Leather, Waxed Canvas and other textiles as well incorporating reclaimed materials into our designs.

As a traveler, we know a durable bag is important whether it's traveling long distances, hiking through trails, or walking to the local farmer's market, you can depend on our bags.

Never outsourced, never made overseas, we are obsessed with quality and durability and believe bags should last a long long time. 

Support Handmade & Local Artisans.

We are a small handmade bag manufacturer; our collection of waxed canvas and leather bags and other goods
are designed for men and women. Handcrafted from materials mostly sourced in the US, each item created in our Ft. Lauderdale studio.
