About Dabbawalla Bags:
Seattle-based Dabbawalla Bags is the manufacturer of a whimsical crayon-colored collection of stylishly modern bags. The company evolved out of the need in the marketplace for suitably sized children’s backpacks and lunch bags made from eco-friendly and sustainable materials that are free of commercial hype.
Dabbawalla Bags is the inspiration of Susan Givens, an inveterate world traveler who lives in Seattle, WA. She has partnered with her sister, Carol Mack, a New York designer, and together they share a commitment to designing bags that are fun, functional and socially-responsible.
The company launched in 2008 with Lunch Bags and Backpacks designed for pre-school and elementary age children. The insulating and washable bags continue to stand out among their peers with thoughtful, functional details including a sturdy grip handle, wide zipper openings, outside and inside pockets, and sustainable materials.
Meals and adventures are meant are to be enjoyed and the fun starts when carrying a colorful Dabbawalla to school, on outings and even to work. The designs are not just for the young but are also for the young at heart. As sales to adults have increased, Dabbawalla expanded the line into designs that appeal to older kids and launched a small accessory line in 2015.
