The top tube protector arrived promptly after it was shipped. It is excellently constructed and looks fantastic in person. The seller included a wonderful note about care of the item (which applies to many of the store's products) and a segment of wax to retreat the exterior. I absolutely love it and can't wait to get another piece from this shop!

Awesome. Durable, waterproof, just the right size for getting a laptop and change of clothes to work and back.

Working on some custom orders today. A set of Highlands panniers in a custom color set, did you know you can easily get a color change by purchasing a made to order listing and adding on the color change listing?

About

Anhaica

Designing and making bags for bikes lets me merge two of my passions into one idea. Nothing makes me feel more awesome then when I come up with a new way to make a bike more useful.

I started waxing my own canvas when I realized that I wanted to make waterproof bags and I was not happy with any of the materials commercially available to me. So I found a local honey producer who could meet my beeswax demands and started experimenting. My canvas still smells like honey since it has never been chemically deodorized. The process is long, hot and can be boring but I wouldn't trade having my own hand waxed canvas for anything.

Our community is a constant source of support and inspiration. Marina spends one day a week volunteering at two organizations , Bread and Roses Food Coop a 100% volunteer run non-profit grocery store and Krank it up! community bike shop, she sits on the board of both of these non-profits. The belief that community is invaluable is a guiding force behind Anhaica.
