Our mission at BAGGU is to make high quality, long lasting bags that feel good to use.
We use high quality 100% Rip-Stop Nylon in our Nylon bags, a durable and strong material used for parachutes. Nylon is an infinitely recyclable material, which helps reduce waste as well. BAGGU runs a nylon recycling program — we collect used bags in return for a discount on a new order.
In our recycled cotton canvas line, all of our cotton is made from pre-consumer, recycled cotton; cotton scraps recovered during the creation of other cotton products like t-shirts and socks that would otherwise have gone to a landfill. It is even more environmentally responsible than organic cotton.
Our natural milled leather is produced domestically in an ISO-14001 Certified Tannery which is an International Standard established to distinguish tanneries that document and manage their operations to minimize the impact on the environment.
Our Construction Methods
BAGGU products are constructed to minimize material waste and ensure high quality.
BAGGU nylon bags are made to carry your stuff for years. They are made from a super strong material with double stitched seams — each bag can hold up to 50 lbs. This means no ripped seams and a bag that lasts longer.
Our nylon bags are also designed to minimize material waste. They are assembled from one continuous piece of material, with the cut out portion used to construct its carrying pouch.
We use environmentally responsible dyes and production — the dye we selected for our bags is fully absorbed by the material, which minimizes run off. Because nylon is extremely lightweight, it saves fuel when shipping and thus, lessens its carbon footprint. If our nylon bags do end up in the landfill, they take up a fraction of the size of a large cotton or poly-propylene equivalent.
In our leather line, we save leather by assembling the bags from two pieces of material, using the cut out portion used for leather zip pouches.
Where BAGGUs Are Made
Nylon and Canvas Baggus are ethically made in China. What does “ethically made” mean? We regularly audit our factories to ensure humane work hours and wages are enforced. We also work with factories that minimize the impact of our production on the environment.
Our leather line is proudly produced in the U.S.A.
