Bags In Progress

BAGSINPROGRESS is a New York brand whose aim is to make better bags for modern people with busy lives.  Their designs are born on the sidewalks of New York City, inspired by the diverse range of the everyday lives of New Yorkers. And all aspects of BIP’s design begin in their studio located in the city’s iconic Garment District. Each and every product is crafted with the utmost care in local factories both in New York City and around the United States.

Their exclusive, small-scale production sets its product apart from mass-producing brands, ensuring handmade quality that imbues them with warmth and character. Although their products appear simple at first glance, closer inspection reveals that all has been meticulously crafted with functionality in mind. There is a reason behind everything they do—every pocket, every strap, every measurement. Taking the best from what came before, BIP does not merely incorporate vintage elements, but revisits old-fashioned standards of quality in order to set new ones evolved to meet 21st century needs.

Their designs are “in progress” because their lifestyles are in progress. Each season’s new products address evolutions in the day-to-day needs of its customers, for example updating pocket dimensions to keep up changes in sizes and shapes of the electronics that power our everyday lives. As the “tools” of modern trade continue to evolve, BIP’s philosophy is to evolve along with them, so as to continue to deliver better good for a better working environment to people everywhere.
