Rugged Bags for the Journey


Each Pacific Northwest Carry bag is unique.


Using natural elements of wool, leather, cotton duck, copper rivets , driftwood and found treasure each Pacific Northwest Carry Bag is a one of a kind creation.  Built to last, these bags are roomy with many pocket compartments, rugged, and beautiful!  In addition, up cycling materials are used when available such as sturdy leather belts or horse tack for straps, found wool rugs or kilims for the body of the bag, found treasure for decoration.

The textures, colors and beauty of the Pacific Northwest are what drive the creation of each Pacific Northwest Bag.  While the bag is ideal for carrying art supplies, study materials, travel items, most any bag can be adapted to carry your private protection device.

Ron, at Tillamook Boot Repair, does the expert rivet installation as well as the heavy duty stitching when needed.
