Mer Bags began in Brooklyn in 2001 and are designed, cut and hand-built in Bushwick, Brooklyn. They continue to custom make a sizable range of backpacks, tote bags, pouches and wallets with 100% weatherproof materials. Mer items are engineered with industrial materials such as heavy duty cordura nylon and vinyl coated polyester which allow them to combat the elements and the heavy abuse of daily carry. The brand takes much of its inspiration from physical activity, and therefore values simple, sophisticated design solutions for functional use in virtually any setting. The Mer products we carry are specifically designed for us with our own custom elements and colour choices.
