About Badass Backpacks, LLC

Badass Backpacks is a collaborative art project dedicated to self expression and creating connection through conversations. We make art-inspired bags that are ready for adventure.  Badass Backpacks believes that your backpack can be more than just a backpack.  We believe that it can be expressive and thought provoking.  We believe that it can be a companion on your journey; that it can remind you to ask big questions, and it can remind you to put yourself inside each step of the way.  

We seek to build bridges - connected experiences and products worthy of starting a conversation - helping our community find more ways to tell their stories.  And giving them a bag for that journey.  We are based in Austin, TX and all of our bags are crafted with love, made right here in the USA.
