Chip Addington’s love of nature and need for gear led him to make his first bag in 2013. The next year, he opened his current studio in St. Paul and started his journey with Addington Co. A lifelong outdoorsman and tinkerer, he understands the demands of nature’s elements on each piece he crafts. Rugged waxed nylon construction makes each bag tough enough for any adventure. Addington recently added leather goods to his line of signature bags with the introduction of the timber sling and the Läderlåda (Swedish for “leather box”) folded leather catchall.
