Black Star Bags was founded by Dave Stoops in 2006 in Portland, Oregon. It began with a free sewing machine and some used fabric. At the time Dave was a bike messenger and was in need of a waterproof backpack but could not find one with his desired features. Nearly fourteen years and thousands of bags later, Black Star Bags is producing some of the best handmade waterproof bags on the streets.
