Built for Purpose & Made to Last

From Melbourne's laneways to the world's highways and airways, Crumpler is driven by new ideas, and doing things better, in our own unique way. In the early days, Crumpler stood out from the pack - quite literally - through the strong, vibrant colours of our bags and the irreverent, rebellious spirit of our marketing. As times have changed, and the world has become more connected, we too have evolved.

The element that remains solid is our pioneering spirit. We are a team who hunt for constant inspiration. We watch, talk, listen to our Crumpler community - work hard, play hard + continue to dive into the pleasure of creating fantastic carrier solutions for our community.

As being 'on the move' is very much part of the Crumpler heritage, the new Crumpler word marque visually communicates the notion of moving forward, with custom letterforms that speak to the creativity, strength and craftsmanship of the brand DNA.

Heritage

The first Crumpler bag was made in the early 90s when Stuart Crumpler couldn’t find a bag that let him carry all of his belongings as he rode around the city on his bike, and so set about designing one which would.

Heritage

Stu’s solution was a tough, handmade messenger bag – he sourced the best materials he could find and even sought the expertise of a local parachute maker who pulled the prototype apart and showed him stronger methods of stitching.

During this time, Will Miller and Dave Roper ran a courier business and needed quality bags for their riders. Seeing the potential in Stu’s bags, the three of them founded Crumpler with a handshake and the rest is history.
