Welcome to Bags By Alex. My name is Alex and I am creator, designer, production, almost everything here. I created Bags By Alex to make simple, durable, and timeless products for the modern adventurer. Each piece is designed with an intention and use in mind. I design and construct these items to last and be a cherished item you use in your everyday life. We take great pride being based in Maple Grove, MN. Every product is made by me, in my home studio. When you purchase from Bags By Alex you are supporting a small business,  a family and helping grow local small businesses. 

Simple. Durable. Timeless.

About Me.

I am 33 years old and live in Maple Grove, MN. I am married to a beautiful and amazing woman, Alycia. We have a chocolate lab, Ace and two cats, Albert and Amber. We are expecting our first son in early 2024. I have always been a creative but unable to truly harness that until I found sewing in 2020 and even more so in 2023 when I started leather working. I love adventures of all kinds from a week long bike packing trip on the North Shore of MN to urban adventures finding the best food in a new city.  I have a very diverse and interesting background of life experiences that has provided me with unique experiences to lead a life of intention.
