We are Machir.

Traveling extensively for work, talking to fellow travelers, locals and various TSA agents, there is one question that comes up time and again:

Where did you get your bag?

Machir Bags stand out from the crowd, and we are proud to be able to say that we made them ourselves.

How do we do it?

Designed right here in the Midwest (mid-Missouri to be specific), and crafted to meet the needs of people everywhere, our mission is always to offer the best value possible with every Machir bag. Our own experiences traveling and working out of impractical luggage made us acutely aware of the need for high quality, well-made backpacks, duffle bags, messenger bags, and carry-ons at a much more reasonable price. Now we create bags with a passionate dedication to craftsmanship and attention to detail, using high quality leather, fabrics, zippers, buttons and pulls — the same (if not better) materials used in the (much more highly-priced) competing brands.

We may be a small family-owned business, but our decades of hard work and experience have resulted in long-standing ties to world-class suppliers.  Good, old-fashioned relationships are what allow us to provide these high-quality bags at such an affordable price. We love being able to offer the personal touch and attention to detail only a smaller nimble company can provide, while still offering some of the very best travel bags, duffle bags, and men’s and women’s backpacks on the market.

What does Machir mean?

In biblical times, Machir was a powerful conqueror, full of determination and a no-nonsense spirit. In modern times, Machir was the name of our grandmother — who also had a no-nonsense spirit and was quite powerful in her own right. Inspired by her strong, determined, “won’t take no for an answer” example, we named our line of quality bags after Grandma.

What does Machir Stand for?

Machir is committed to giving back — from supplying take-home bags for young Mending Faces patients to supporting the conservation efforts of Johnny Morris’ Wonders of Wildlife National Museum & Aquarium and the Missouri Department of Conservation right here at home.

Want to help or learn more?

Every level of our company is dedicated to using the resources at our disposal in the service of helping others and supporting those who endeavour to create a better world future generations can enjoy.
