We are excited to introduce MAFIA Bags, an eco-friendly design and manufacturing company specializing in handmade backpacks, totes, bags and accessories made from recycled sails. Founded in 2012 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, MAFIA Bags is thrilled to expand into the United States, opening its flagship U.S. facility in San Francisco, where all products will be locally produced.
MAFIA Bags are the brainchild of brother-sister duo Marcos and Paz Mafia, who wanted to share their passion for nature, appreciation for living a simple life, and commitment to making a social impact with others. At just 25 years old, Marcos is an accomplished and award-winning professional kitesurfer who is grateful for all that life and the ocean have given him. MAFIA is his way of returning the favor to nature.
As part of the U.S. launch, MAFIA has introduced a month-long Kickstarter campaign, providing a first opportunity for consumers to purchase MAFIA bags and accessories, while helping to bring the creative project to life. The Kickstarter campaign will run until July 25, 2014; bags start at $60.
