a little bit about us

Thimbleweed was established in Minneapolis in 2021 by Jessica Swanson. A life-long bicyclist and commuter from the city, it didn't take long for her love of sewing and camping to lead her into the world of bikepacking, and she began making her own bags for adventures! After a summer of sewing and biking resulted in a 700-mile solo trip around the state, it became time to turn bike bags into more than just a hobby, and help others get geared up for their own bike adventures. We would love to help you with any commuting, racing, or bikepacking/touring needs you might have. We are looking forward to hearing from you!

custom gear handmade locally

Every bag is made-to-order right now, so every piece of work is individual to the bike and rider it's made for. See some of the possibilities here. We can work with an idea you have, or create your own custom design. Thank you for supporting a local artist and woman owned business while getting out there and riding your bike!
