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, I am proud to offer a line of made to order bags. Some semi-custom options are available for standard 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.
