Our Mission

“Fresh Bags Made Daily, Right Here in San Francisco”

Rickshaw Bagworks designs and manufactures customizable messenger bags, backpacks, briefcases, tote bags, computer sleeves and related accessories in its own sewing factory in San Francisco. Rickshaw was founded in 2007 by its owner, CEO and creative director, Mark Dwight. Today, we are a dedicated team of 30 people working together in a small warehouse in the historic Dogpatch neighborhood. Our products are inspired by urban mobility and distinguished by simple, functional design and high-quality materials and construction. We also design many of our own fabrics, which are manufactured in the USA, with sustainability and long-lasting performance in mind.
