Locally Made Bags Colorado Moms Can’t Live Without

These Colorado companies have fashionable, hard-working bags for you or any other mom on your holiday gift list.

That season of rushing around, shopping, and visiting is here. Every mom needs a great looking bag that is also functional for toting a diaper, snacks, and a change of clothes for the little one, as well as a wallet, phone, and lip gloss. These Colorado companies have fashionable, hard-working bags for you or any other mom on your holiday gift list.

OG Sack

With its broad capacity, sleek profile, and ingenious organizational scheme, OG Sack’s Made in Colorado Hybrid gets moms from preschool drop off to yoga, the supermarket, and beyond—no pit stop required. Built to hold the equivalent of three grocery bags, this sack is outfitted with adjustable front straps and washable liners. A multi-strap system means mom can carry it tote, messenger, or backpack style.

Maruca Design

New moms are trading bulky diaper bags for sleek, cross-body slings, like the City Girl or Busy Body, a couple no-fuss and lightweight solutions offering the right amount of storage for quick trips necessitating hands-free travel. American-sourced fabrics, many made from recycled plastic, are woven into indestructible Jacquard bags in Boulder. Looking for something larger? Try the Rail Bag.

Topo Designs

From town to trail, Topo’s compact-yet-vast Mini Mountain Bag was made for active Rocky Mountain moms who celebrate simple, hardworking, and beautiful designs. Store essentials in the handy outside pocket, and lug larger items inside a rugged 1000D Cordura exterior with adjustable shoulder straps for multiple carry options. New mom hack: Store diapers in the interior iPad sleeve.

St. Clair Designs

The ultimate Bohemian bag, these eye-catching carryalls are for artsy mothers searching for beauty and function. Every St. Clair product is unique, sewn by hand in the mountains with seven-plus original fabrics selected by founder Megan DeSmidt. The Kathleen is a hearty over-the-shoulder purse that converts to a backpack, and features several cleverly placed zippered pockets.
