How RiutBag is made
Each RiutBag is designed by Sarah Giblin and is handmade at a sewing machine in Fujian, southern China. This is the best factory in the world that designer, Sarah Giblin, could find. Sarah spends 3-4 months per year at the RiutBag factory working alongside the staff, improving manufacturing techniques and designs every time and catching any errors which occur naturally when new, complex backpack designs are handmade by real people. Together with Sarah, two production teams of 22 people have made every RiutBag in existence. When the RiutBags are complete, RiutBag designer, checks every single one - seam by seam, zip by zip - to ensure they are right for you.
