Makeshifter pop up shop at Fairhaven Bicycles

Becky of Makeshifter Canvas works will set up a one-day mini-shop inside our store, offering handmade canvas bike bags.   

About Makeshifter:

Makeshifter Canvas Works is a one-woman canvas bag company in Portland, Oregon, founded upon the belief that there is a place for handsome, characterful handcrafted items in the bicycle industry. USA-milled canvas and wool are the primary materials used, creating bags that are as durable and functional as they are pretty.

I started Makeshifter Canvas Works with a mission to bring alternative products to a male-dominated industry, and to help women and casual cyclists feel more welcome, represented, and inspired by the cycling world. Makeshifter bags channel the love for a slow and rambling ride, a disregard for lightweight and competitive ideals, and a sense of whimsy and humor that I hope will invite all to ride more.

When I started bike touring years ago, I was disappointed by the existing options for cycling bags--mostly synthetic, characterless, techy, masculine--and began designing and constructing my own bags. I sought an aesthetic that would pay homage to the cultures and places through which I pedal: the vibrant, art-filled city of Portland, rich Northwest forests and high desert, and a historical landscape that includes indigenous cultures,  pioneers, and traditional handcrafts. The materials, colors, patterns and design details you see in every Makeshifter product are a celebration of these roots.
