Curator’s Pick: 20 American Made Bags

This weekend, we’ve got it in the bag. Or, you know, several bags. With fall around the corner, we’re updating our rotation with transitional staples, durable materials, and enduring twists on our favorite carryalls. Shop the edit here, and read on for a few of our buying team’s favorites.


Handmade in Brooklyn, gundula’s BK-via-Berlin aesthetic is no more apparent than with the Head of the Pack backpack. Utilitarian lines, leather construction and canvas detailing make it a clean, unisex number that’ll be your number one accomplice in getting. it. done.


Sharp shapes, playful tassels and a saturated hue elevate The Common Knowledge’s simple shoulder bag to a statement-making knockout. We especially love the deep blush color – vivid enough for summer and easy translated to sophisticated fall ensembles.


Beautifully constructed, easy to carry and instantly recognizable on an airport carousel (if you check it, that is – it’s exactly the right size for overhead bins), Owen & Fred’s Stay Sharp Duffle is the ultimate travel companion. Big enough for a laptop, two soccer balls and more, it’s as functional as it is good looking.


It’s the shape of the season (and the next, and the next…). Crafted from top-grain British tan leather and Pendleton wool, Future Glory’s bucket bag is an homage to vintage American stylings, contrasted by a sleekly modern silhouette. It’s also the perfect size for your everyday essentials.


Owen & Fred’s Hey Handsome shaving kit bag is a travel essential you’d want to use everyday. Exactly the right size for preferred shaving gear, it’s lined with waterproof nylon, features nickel hardware and gives you a compliment every time you open it.

The above are just 5 of our team’s picks. Check out the full list of 20 picks here.
