At its core, Swift Industries is a bicycle bag company in Seattle, Washington. All of their products are designed and manufactured from a beautiful industrial workplace in the heart of Seattle. They love bicycles, chase adventure, and have deep admiration for high quality craftsmanship.
Launched in 2008: two kids with a sewing machine, some chicken scratch sketches, and an insatiable obsession with bicycles. With their basement as a workshop and Cascadia as their backyard, Swift Industries was born. In the beginning they really roughed it—dirtbag adventurers and a company that was homespun, vibrant, and delightfully unconventional. As cyclists around the world have caught wind of Swift Industries they’ve loved navigating slow-growth, bringing in a team of amazing seamstresses, and working long, hard hours to get people travelling by bicycle.
Since day one they’ve worked to make stellar bags and keep it in-house. As they’ve grown, everyone at Swift has committed to rethinking the way gear is designed and produced in the United States. Each custom product is made from start to finish by accomplished seamstresses, a company trademark that is nearly extinct in modern manufacturing.
We learned to sew because it’s dynamic and compelling work. They give textile dimension, transforming flat and lifeless materials into tough, functional, beautiful adventure bags.
