Swift Industries is a bicycle bag company in Seattle, Washington. All of their products are designed and manufactured from a beautiful industrial workplace in the heart of Seattle. Jason and Martina started making bags in 2008 and have since loved navigating slow-growth, bringing in a team of amazing seamstresses, and working long, hard hours to get people travelling by bicycle. They give textile dimension, transforming flat and lifeless materials into tough, functional, beautiful adventure bags.
On a tour down the Pacific Coast ten years ago, they drafted what they thought was their traveller’s edict and has turned out to be the tenets of their working philosophy:
Trust that you’re capable of going the distance Let the experience fuel your creativity Have a plan, and plan not to stick with it Enjoy your encounters with the people you meet along the way Move steadily and with purpose Heighten your sense of place Find inspiration in the little things Get lost every once in awhile Be aware of the impact that you make
