The idea for Mack Workshop came about in 2013. I wasn't able to find a bag for under my saddle that was the right size, so I made my own.
Since deciding to start making bags for other people in 2014 - admittedly under a different name initially - I have made around 3500 bags for somewhere in the region of 1800 customers, which is an absolutely bonkers statistic that I had no idea of until I looked it up a few minutes ago.
I have been working a full time job since 2009, and since 2014 I've been working that job alongside Mack Workshop. For some of that time I was working 4 days a week at "real work", and evenings the other 3 days were dedicated to Mack Workshop.
As of the 1st July 2021 I will officially be working "full time" at Mack Workshop. I hope this will initially allow for shorter lead times and better communication across both email and social media. Over time I hope to be able to bring more products, as well as more workshops, videos, and learning opportunities.
Thank you for your continued support over the last nearly 7 and a half years, here's to the future.
