We make every Flashbag in our our shop at 60 Lake St in Burlington, Vermont.
Come visit! We are open Tuesday-Friday from 11-4. If you can't make it in during our shop hours, feel free to contact us to make an appointment for a time that works for you!

It all started in 2005 when two teachers began to explore their creative side, turning paper into durable, eye-catching, one-of-a-kind bags and immediately heard, “Where’d you get that bag?”. Part of the charm of a Flashbag is that it becomes an extension of who you are and tells your story. We begin with your printed image, line it with  laminate, layer with recycled newspaper and with our industrial sewing machines create your very own one-of-a-kind, functional piece of art. We hope you have as much fun creating as we do!
Carry a Flashbag and carry a conversation.
