ABOUT LOCAL BAG
Hi, and welcome to LocalBag.net. My name is Cindy and Local Bag is a small business I started in 2012. I design and make reusable bags with reinforced brown paper grocery bags and real handles.
Originally, I thought my bags would be used for groceries — and they are — but people also use them to carry around all kinds of other stuff in their lives.
Because the bags are paper, they can be decorated in all the fun and imaginative ways that paper offers – paint, collage, embroidery… My hope is that Local Bag will grow, providing work, inspiration, creativity and community around this simple and useful object.
Currently, in addition to me, there is one local artist painting Local Bags. Her name is Sybil Park and you can read more about her and see her work here.
I do my best to ensure the bags are strong and useful, beautiful and well-made. As far as I know, I am “ground zero” of this unusual cross section of materials and construction of bag, and few things make me happier than to know people love a product that I dreamed with my heart and made with my hands.
