Hi, I'm Jay and I run Bags by Bird, or BXB for short. BXB is a one-person home-business, where I make small batches of bags in my 100 sq. ft. workspace. I started this company because I wanted classic style saddlebags with modern updates for my own bike touring adventures. I've tried common bikepacking dry-bag-style handlebar bags and seat packs but always felt that they lacked the ease of use and toughness of my Carradice-style touring bags. Thus my own sewing adventures began and fortunately other have expressed interest in my bags and now I have this little sewing operation!
