Carmichael & Co. Bike Bags were created in 2012 by Ava Carmichael. When the designer couldn't find a bike bag that suited her style and budget, she decided to create one.
With a little time on her hands between her full time job, she designed and sewed her first prototype and later took what little she had in savings to have them professionally created. Within a year, the collection of Carmichael Bike Bags was realized, and one year after that, Carmichael bags launched officially via the Kickstarter crowdfunding platform. In total, over $22,000 was raised to launch the collection. Carmichael bags were recognized and distributed worldwide.
