We wanted to create a bag inspired by the city, with the versatility of a tote, the functionality of a messenger and we thought there's no better place to debut it then at the 99% design conference in New York. A sophisticated bag with a long slim aesthetic that perfectly fits a 13" macBook Air, iPad or Moleskine, the new Rickshaw "City Collection" is simple, stylish, versatile, and customizable. We designed our new three-style tote series to be the perfect companion bag for your on-the-go essentials.
A Functional Approach:
We've designed an innovative accessory system designed to work seamlessly with our City Collection family. Continuing our philosophy of minimal, sustainable design, each bag has a strip of velcro designed to hold accessories that can add function to your bag. We believe your bag should adapt, and our accessory system allows you to easily change your bag's configuration. Here's our full line of interchangeable velcro accessories, and we're steadily working on more.
We pride ourselves on following our three F's of design, Form Function and Footprint, to craft a quality product with urban communing in mind. Next time you're in town, we invite you to come take a tour of our San Francisco factory to see where each and every Zero is made.
Tucked away in your Rickshaw bag you'll fnd a tag with
our special heart symbol, the Rickshaw 'PCQ Tattoo'. This
little graphic gem represents three things that are near
and dear to all of us here at Rickshaw – Passion, Craft and
Quality. The heart represents our PASSION for bags, bikes
and our home city of San Francisco.The silver needle and
gold thread represent love for the age–old CRAFT of
making bags by hand. The five stars represent our
dedication to the highest standards of QUALITY. The five
stars also honor the constellation of our stakeholders –
Customers, Employees, Business Partners, Investors and
Community – and our commitment to treat each with
respect and compassion. The Rickshaw PCQ Tattoo is just a
little reminder of some of the important intangible
qualities that accompany our physical products.

FABRICO ERGO SUM
I Make, Therefore I Am. Here at Rickshaw, we're proud of the fact that we make our bags in our own factory,
right here in San Francisco. We love designing, making and selling our own products. Our fans are people who
care about the story — the 'who, what, where, why and how' — behind the products they buy. They want to
know the maker — not just the marketer. They revel in the motivation and the method. We make what we sell
because it defines us. We do it because we can. We do it because we want to. And, we do it because it's fun!
We believe the soul, and the glory, is in the making. Thanks for supporting our passion.
