Artifact Bag Co. began February 2010 in their basement with a vintage commercial sewing machine which Chris Hughes (founder) found on Craigslist. In December 2010, he left his job to run Artifact full-time. Till today it’s the best decision he have ever made. Chris is working in his workshop with a combination of hand tools and vintage industrial equipment. The products are made from the finest American sourced waxed canvas and leather and offer a lifetime guarantee for all their products. All Artifact products are handmade in Omaha (U.S.A.). This is real authentic craftsmanship!
