About Us

Sewing Strong Since 2007

In 2002, in the aftermath of the first dot-com implosion, our founder, Mark Dwight, left behind a career in high tech, and migrated from Silicon Valley to San Francisco to take the helm of a storied messenger bag company. Several years later, he sold that company and struck out on his own, founding Rickshaw on May 21st, 2007. Today, Rickshaw is a dedicated team of a dozen people working together in a small warehouse in SF's historic Dogpatch neighborhood. Our products are inspired by urban mobility, and distinguished by simple, functional design, and high-quality materials and construction.

From the Great Recession to the Global Pandemic, Rickshaw has been a thrilling adventure. We are grateful to everyone who has supported us and helped us reach our teenage years. The next few years will surely test our survival skills, but we're up for the challenge, and look forward to many more years of pursuing our passion for design and manufacturing.
