Founded in Buenos Aires in 2012, Mafia began as a pursuit to find the ultimate bag to carry our wetsuits around the globe. We knew we wanted a sustainable solution, but it had to be premium and useful too – something we could seamlessly carry from the plane, to the beach and onto the city. 

We made our first bags using an upcycled sail, learning as we went, but we couldn’t shake the feeling that we were onto something big. Soon our community and friends began donating sails to use, and we developed a circular relationship where they tested our packs out on the sea and we created new designs from their retired sails. 

Now operating across two countries, we're growing the team and have expanded our products from that globe-trotting wetsuit bag to a refined assortment of versatile packs and totes to serve people from all walks of life. We’re fortunate to regularly work alongside industry leaders from Patagonia Provisions, MoMA, the Stanford Design School and others to bring you innovative, low-impact products from reclaimed materials. 

We remain dedicated to the community in which we live, employing local people to cut and sew each bag right here in California. We'll fix and repair any product you get from us for life. And we are doing our part to help people buy less but buy better.
