Founded in 2000, Spicer Bags (formerly Sally Spicer Bags) designs and manufactures textile bags in San Francisco, CA. Our focus is on quality workmanship, contemporary design and durability.
We are proud to say that each and every one of our products is made in America. When possible, we use American-made material as well – such as our canvas that is woven in New Jersey, and our zippers that are made in Los Angeles.
Spicer Bags is always innovating. From new bag designs to new materials (such as eco-friendly cork fabric), we are constantly updating our line to keep it fresh.
Spicer Bags is operated by mother-daughter team Bonnie Gemmell and Sarah Stanley.
With marketing backgrounds but absolutely no manufacturing experience, they took a leap of faith and purchased Spicer Bags from Sally Spicer Rankine (the founder) in March of 2013. Sally was battling cancer and was going to close down the much-loved 13-year old business unless she found someone willing to carry on the legacy. Well, she found two people!
Today, Bonnie and Sarah are having a blast designing new bag shapes, picking out fabric, attending local artisan events and running a manufacturing studio (who would have ever thought!) They are 100% committed to manufacturing in America, and look forward to expanding the reach of Spicer Bags in the coming years.
