More Than Just Canvas

Duluth Pack. Two words and one big history.

The brand, Duluth Pack has been proudly around since 1882. The company’s products from canoe packs, to business portfolios and purses alike, have been passed down from generations, telling a story of where they have been and what they have held.  In the Duluth Pack flagship store, located in Canal Park in Duluth, MN, there are plenty of products that have tested the lifetime guarantee warranty on craftsmanship and hardware. One olive drab portfolio, showcases it’s battle markings after being deployed to overseas. Another, getting jolted by the direct hit of lightening and still staying in a pack-like-shape. The third, being scratched and bit by a hungry black bear, yet still a pack to carry contents in.

When some hear the words Duluth Pack, a canvas pack comes to mind, but the Duluth Pack brand is more than just that. Duluth Pack prides itself on the infamous statement, “If it isn’t broken, why fix it?”.  The 133 year old company has been making products the same way, each handcrafted by one sewer, riveted with original techniques, and cut with precision on the highest quality of American leather, canvas, and wool around. Once each bag, specifically made just for you is complete, the sewer signs their signature. This is a personal expression that the Duluth Pack brand prides itself on that’s unique and promotes their skillful employees.

The Duluth Pack factory is available for tours all day, every week. They are open Monday – Thursday. Please call ahead to reserve a tour spot. The factory is located at 1610 W. Superior St in Duluth, MN where Duluth Pack has been handcrafting bags and packs in the same and only Duluth Pack factory for over 100 years. Now that’s impressive!

The Duluth Pack retail store is located in energetic Canal Park in Duluth, MN. The Duluth Pack selection at the retail store includes all products in all colors, canvas, wool, and leather options. There are other well-known brands available for purchase such as, The North Face, Patagonia, Hydroflask, Merrell, Keen, Smartwool, Pendleton, Camelback, and many more.

With age comes wisdom and Duluth Pack has a history and story to share.
