Bikecraft Holiday Gift Fair

Mark it on your calendar and get ready! Black Star Bags will be participating in the Bikecraft Holiday Gift Fair on December 1 and 2, 2012 with an awesome array of fantastic gift items… Phone Holsters, Tool Pouches, Wallets, Coin Purses, and of course a great color selection of Messenger Bags, Backpacks and Panniers!


Stop by our table and say hi, and to check out our extra holiday deals and discounts.

Among other things, we’ll be waiving our $20 custom fee when you order a custom bag on one of those days at the bikecraft fair!
Can’t wait to see you there!

Superhero Messenger Bag!

Sometimes a custom bag order comes around that really blows us away in its custom capacity and stretches us to figure out how to make it all work together.

Well, this Medium Messenger Bag for Eric V. certainly is working and is truly customizable - to fit Eric’s outfit, mood AND mode of transportation with an amazing argyle velcro to fit matching colored patches so that every outfit is color coordinated! The bag is covered in Eric’s wool suit fabric and sports a handle, shoulder strap and flap to stow away the messenger strap when boarding a bus or entering a board meeting. One thing it’s missing: the superhero cape.
