A few months ago, our founder, Mark Dwight, met with the vivacious leader of the SF Etsy Street Team, Katy Atchison, and her vibrant SF Etsy colleague, Rebecca Saylor, to brainstorm collaboration opportunities. Our first project together was a design contest, in which SF Etsy members created their own flap designs for a Rickshaw Zero Messenger Bag. The designs were posted to SF Etsy's Facebook page, and the entrant with the most "likes" and comments won the opportunity to have their design made into a completed Rickshaw messenger bag for free. We hosted a lively celebration at the Rickshaw factory, and eleven other participants decided to have their designs made into one-of-a-kind Rickshaw bags. To commemorate our first project together, we created a short video of the gorgeous original designs being made into finished bags. Check it out here.
If you're inspired but don't want to design your own bag, you can still personalize one with our new Add A Patch kit:
