We live here. We manufacture here. We recycle here. We give a damn and are committed to urban progress. Through the below sustainability programs, ZERO Timbuk2 bags have been sent to landfills since 2014, and thousands of bags have been repaired or repurposed. We take our commitments seriously.
We take our responsibility to the city personally.
We build Timbuk2 products to last, and stand behind our legendary quality. It starts at the design level with uncompromising craftsmanship and sourcing sustainably produced materials from Bluesign® certified mills, that are extensively tested for durability. Timbuk2 products are built to last a lifetime and we support them through their complete lifecycle. All Timbuk2 bags and accessories come with our lifetime warranty. Forever.
SEWN IN SF | CA
Since 1989, we’ve remained committed to manufacturing our custom-built bags in San Francisco. The sound of sewing machines is music to our ears and it’s with great pride that we support local workers, their communities, and San Francisco at large. Manufacturing locally ensures top quality, better working conditions, and helps us work towards a more sustainable business model by cutting CO2 emissions significantly.

REPAIR: WE'LL FIX IT
Life (and holes) happen. Repairing bags is one step above recycling, because it is more environmentally friendly to fix what has already been made. Our San Francisco team is proud to repair over 6,000 bags a year. Start your repair here. We also fully support our customers who want to do DIY repairs. Our library of spare parts is available to you here, and you can find our DIY guides on iFixit here.
RECYCLE: BREAK UP WITH YOUR BAG
In 2006, we launched an initiative called Break Up With Your Bag where we encourage our loyal Timbuk2 customers to donate their used bag to someone in need, instead of tossing it away. Over the years the program has grown to include donation partners in cities across the USA and Canada. Through these donations, more than 15,000 bags have been donated in our communities. To participate, drop off your unwanted Timbuk2 bag at a Timbuk2 shop or click here.
RENEW: THE RENEWAL WORKSHOP PARTNERSHIP
When bags are beyond cleaning, repair, or donation, we send your bag to our partner The Renewal Workshop, who will make them functionally fabulous again for its next life. Anything beyond repair is turned into upcycled materials or recycling feedstock.
