Timbuk2 is Coming to Venice

Timbuk2, a pioneer in messenger bags and urban gear, is opening a spot at 1410 Abbot Kinney. As a personal note, I have 2 of their bags, one of which I got over 10 years ago, and the other about 5 years old. Both are still going strong (and dry) after daily use in the rain forest / ocean environment of Costa Rica’s Caribbean coast over the last 7 years. There’s the unpaid personal endorsement for you, here’s what their PR sent us:

Timbuk2’s new 680 sq. ft. store is located at 1410 Abbot Kinney Blvd. in the sunny Venice Beach neighborhood known for its vibrant, eclectic mix of independent boutiques and trendy restaurants. Timbuk2 has partnered with award-winning architecture and design firm Gensler and LA-based architects Dax Studio to bring the Gensler designed community-oriented vision to life.

The shop will showcase Timbuk2’s entire product line of more than 100 styles of bags and accessories, including an interactive custom workshop where customers can design a one-of-a-kind messenger bag, backpack, shoulder bag, tote or accessory made to order in their San Francisco factory. Timbuk2 Venice Beach will also launch its own in-store bike share program in August.
