Susie created her first ‘Susies’ bag 30 years ago. That was the bottle bag, and not only was it the perfect accessory for family picnics on the farm and holidays at the lake, it became an instant hit with her friends and family.
Before long Susie was spending her days cutting canvas to deliver to her close knit group of specialist sewers. As word got out about Susie’s growing collection of bags a small online store was born, and today, the family owned and operated business employs sewers all over New Zealand.
While the trademark ‘Susies’ canvas bottle and picnic bags remain fan favourites, the range now includes weekend bags, tote bags, picnic rugs to dog beds and cushions.
But as the product range and client base has grown over those 30 years the philosophy has stayed the same: to produce top quality, durable and stylish gear, hand-made in New Zealand.
Thank you for all your support of Susie and her bags. We absolutely love seeing our canvas goods on adventures around the world so please keep sharing and be sure to DM us your pics.
