About

LA Black Bags, like everyone else has evolved. Always looking for our true voice. We believe we have finally found one of the many songs to sing.

We have come to embrace tradition with the industrial edge we are so drawn to. We look at everything as a potential new design or supply source, looking outside the bag so to speak.

The traditional part of this equation consist of the canvas used for the exterior and interior body construction, When we are lucky we also use upcycled fabrics whenever possible (gotta be green). The industrial edge comes in the use of the hardware. Coated steel cables (try tearing that up), solid aluminum ferrels (the thingys that hold the cable closed), and solid grommets mechanically set. Which as far as we can calculate add up to one nearly indestructible bag. Gotta love it!

One last bit of info to share. Know that 5% of all sales is donated to Heifer International. We like the warm fuzzies of sharing.
