Because the majority of manufacturing is done overseas, finding a leather manufacturer in America proved to be an extreme challenge. We didn’t want the quality of the bags to suffer at the expense of production. For that reason, all Baltimore Bags are handcrafted locally and fashioned with American leather by American craftsmen.
Inspired by the creative energy of our city, urban cycling and an intense desire to make great products, we started Rickshaw to satisfy our own personal passion for bags. We know how people love their bags. We think it’s cool–if not kind of weird–the way people grow attached to their favorite bag as though it were a pet or loved–one.
We don’t simply list brands on our site. We actually verify brands before listing them on our site!

They are makers, retailers, brands, mom & pop shops, technology companies, distributors or suppliers of domestically sourced raw materials, general manufacturers, and service providers. They make or carry products Made in USA. They serve businesses and/or consumers. In some cases, not everything they carry will be Made in USA. We celebrate them anyway for making an effort.
