Crumpler | 25 Years of making bags

15 Jul 2020

To celebrate 25 years of making bags, Crumpler are bringing back everyone's all time favourite bag, straight out of the '90s.

The Barney Rustle Blanket bag, one of their most iconic messenger bags that helped to start their adventure. The Barney Messenger bag is available in black and indigo with bright hues of red and yellow.

The bag includes features such as limited edition velcro badges, graphic printed lining and feature trims.


The first Crumpler bag was made in the early '90s when Stuart Crumpler couldn't find a bag that let him cycle home with a slab of beer on his back. 

The Solution

Stu's solution to this common problem was a tough, handmade messenger bag - the precursor to the famous Barney Rustle Blanket. Designing and making bags fit for purpose, however weird, and making them bloody tough remain core design principles for Crumpler. 

Seeing the potential of the bags, Will Miller and Dave Roper, met with Stuand the three self-taught bag nerds founded Crumpler with a handshake over a beer at the pub.

After 25 years, countless bags and thousands of happy customers, Crumpler still love making bags, and fooling around.
