Treetop is a small cottage operation out of Chicago, IL. It started when I found some canvas scraps and had a supply of old toe straps. Wanting a saddle wedge that another bagmaker had discontinued from their line, I set to work making a saddle wedge, sewing by hand. I slowly started adding a small array of tools and soon realized that bagmaking included not only sewing abilities but leatherworking skills as well. Continuing to sew bags by hand for about a year, I offered bags to fellow cyclists.
From that beginning, I've learned a lot, upgraded some tools, and begun sewing with a machine. With lots of practice in designing bags, figuring out what works and what doesn't, and honing my leatherworking skills, we are proud to offer line of made to order bags. Some semi-custom options are available for custom designs.
Ready-made bags, prototypes, and leather goods designs will be offered from time to time as I venture into leather-specific items. Feel free to send me a message if you have any questions.
