Our Brand

Sometimes a bag is just a bag. But we believe your bag can also be a reflection of how you view the world. Our bags and accessories are not only are beautiful and functional, but promote   sustainable living for ourselves and the earth. Our eco-friendly bags are made from raw content sourced from post industrial waste so they’re biodegradable, reducing waste and avoiding plastics, and every purchase supports women in rural communities who make up half of our labor force. Our bags withstand tough wear and tear and last through years of rugged use. Wherever the day takes you … feel good, look good, do good. #ShoreBags #Evolveyourbag

About Our Company

Our family has been in the cotton canvas business for over 20 years! ShoreBags was established in 2016 – and we’ve always had a focus on responsible sourcing and ethical manufacturing practices. We are 100% minority women-owned. As important as it is to produce high quality products at competitive rates, we understand the stigma behind purchasing products produced in developing countries and the lack of oversight on labor practices in many facilities. As a result, we’ve built a business model that provides opportunities to women in impoverished communities and opposes unfair manufacturing practices of any kind.

Our name is influenced by the location of our company headquarters on the beautiful shores on Lake Michigan. Our mission is to produce bags and accessories that reflect an active, outdoor lifestyle where function and eco-fashion meet.
