A person holding open a yellow leather handbag

A purse made by Tom's mother Bobbie, who was the first person to inspire and mentor Tom in his own efforts making bags and gear.

Barbara (Bobbie) Bihn's initials in one of the handbags she made. 

We're the TOM BIHN crew: we design bags, make bags, ship bags, and answer questions about bags. Oh, and we collaborate on blog posts, too.
