Custom Timbuk2 Bags

It was never about the bags

Timbuk2 was founded in 1989 by a bike messenger who taught himself to sew. In his San Francisco garage, Rob Honeycutt pioneered custom manufacturing and in doing so, created the icon, the Classic Messenger Bag.

But it was never really about bags. Rob saw Timbuk2 as a lifestyle, not a business, so he built the business to be bigger than a product and a team that was more family than workforce. He empowered customers to be partners in his process by choosing exactly what they wanted. Fast forward to today, Timbuk2 are still building your lifetime warranty bags, not far from that original garage in the Mission District in San Francisco.

Get inspired by looking at some of the custom bag examples we have created or work with us to create your very own custom Timbuk2 bag. A personalized bag with your company logo will make the perfect corporate gift for new employees or existing employees alike.
