Our Response to the COVID-19 Crisis

Last Updated: June 10th, 2020

A Letter from our President

To the Timbuk2 Community,
We, like you, continue to navigate our way through the COVID-19 experience. Very likely, the spread and the impact will be felt for some time.

As a San Francisco Mission-based company with a national retail footprint, we are keenly aware of the economic impact of this unprecedented time and we are very grateful to have a path forward for Timbuk2. Our San Francisco Factory is back ‘online’ making bags and fulfilling orders. We are cautiously optimistic as we look forward, and we are focused on creating the best functional product for you.

While we are excited to get back to work, our enthusiasm is a bit ‘curbed’ as we remain cautious and protective of our staff, our families, and our customers. But, we will meet you with enthusiasm - in person, on the phone, or on line - as we collectively find our footing. Every day we seek opportunities to live our values and deliver upon our commitment to the community - local and afar.

  • Give a damn; because we do
  • Engage us with you, you with us
  • Be Fearless in the face of great unknowns
  • Be Nimble and move forward
  • Deliver for you; we get it done
  • Lighten Up; when levity brings us together

Please stay in good health. Thank you for your business and loyalty.

Deborah Palmer Keiser
President, Timbuk2
