Quality, Comfort, Style and Value

The AmeriBag® Way

Every company has its own success story, and AmeriBag is no exception. So, how did two young entrepreneurs change the entire handbag industry? Irwin and Margery Gaffin know it best – by offering customers not only what they want, but also what they need.

Since its inception over twenty years ago, AmeriBag has focused on one core principle - quality. Co-founder and renowned leather craftsman, Irwin Gaffin, wouldn’t have it any other way. From using the best materials available, to the care and craftsmanship that goes into making each bag, the quality of AmeriBag products is never sacrificed. This craftsmanship is what first helped Gaffin become recognized in the handbag industry. Prior to the company’s inception, Gaffin worked as a luggage design consultant for LL Bean. Several years later, after AmeriBag’s inception, the AmeriBag Healthy Back Bag® tote has become a staple in LL Bean’s inventory as well other major catalogs and retailers, selling close to 3,000,000 bags to customers worldwide. This remarkable product is the basis of AmeriBag’s success, and continues to gain sales and market share to support an amazing global expansion program.
