Our Story

Black Star Bags was founded by Dave Stoops in 2006. It began with a found sewing machine and some used fabric. At the time Dave was a bike messenger and was in need of a waterproof backpack but could not find one with the desired pockets and features that a custom bag could provide. Nearly seven years and several hundred bags later,  Black Star Bags is producing some of the best handmade waterproof bags on the streets.

Black Star Bags can also be found at several bike shops in Portland:

Community Cycling Center, 1700 NE Alberta Street

- A Better Cycle on 2324 SE Division Street

-Joe Bike, 3953 SE Hawthorne Blvd

- Pedal Bike Tours,133 Southwest 2nd Avenue, (503) 243-2453
