There are many craft-related businesses in and around Portland, Oregon. Craft beer, craft chocolate, craft coffee and, most certainly, craft bags. And why not? Why shouldn’t all we buy, or have the option to buy, be as nice as it can be? Portland’s Blaqpaks follows this rule of thumb and delivers BIG TIME on quality, style and function. As they say on their own website, “(we build) bags that look good enough and fit well enough that you’ll want to use them for life.” I would have to agree…these are some darn nice bags.

Whether biking, walking or traveling afar, the various options available from Blaqpak allow you to carry what you need in true style. And these bags are just so well made. I’m convinced that, while higher in price that what you’ll run into at Target (pronounced Tar-Jay), you’ll spend far less money overall on “bags” if you buy a Blaqpak. Why? Because these bags are so awesome you won’t be running out to spend money on a bag again (anytime soon anyways).

Well, nothing like hearing from the company itself. Here’s a quote from the Blaqpak website, in their ABOUT US section:

BlaqPaks are designed and built under one roof in southeast Portland Oregon. When you purchase one of our bags, you’re supporting a tradition of high quality, American craftsmanship backed by a lifetime guarantee.

We believe our bags should endure anything life throws at them, season after season. Making them handsome is the easy part, cutting corners on construction and material quality is easy too, but that’s not what we do. We believe in respecting your investment, our hard work, and the materials we use by building bags we can guarantee for life. Bags that look good enough and fit well enough that you’ll want to use them for life.

Our workshop and showroom are open. Stop by if you’re in Portland and we’ll gladly show you how we do what we do. Thanks for 11 years and counting, here’s to many more!
