HERITAGE

The first Crumpler bag was made in the early ‘90s when Stuart Crumpler couldn’t find a bag that let him cycle home with a slab of beer on his back.

THE SOLUTION

Stu’s solution to this common problem was a tough, handmade messenger bag – the precursor to the famous Barney Rustle Blanket. Designing and making bags fit for purpose, however weird, and making them bloody tough remain core design principles for Crumpler.

Crumpler Will Dave Stu

Seeing the potential of the bags, Will Miller and Dave Roper met with Stu and the three self-taught bag nerds founded Crumpler with a handshake over a beer at the pub.

After 25 years and countless bags made, some things have changed, but our purpose remains the same. We still obsess about designing bags that stand the test of time.
