Spooltown is a small-run sewing factory in Portland, Oregon, specializing in handbags and accessories. We excel at working with finicky fabrics like leather, faux-leather and waxed canvas. Needle holes are forever, so you've got to get it right the first time.

We run production for many established brands, emphasizing rigorous quality standards, communication, and lasting relationships. We offer design consulting and product development as needed to make manufacturing more affordable in the long run.

We believe in visible, ethical American manufacturing. We believe that people should see the process of making because it's hard. And amazing. And worthwhile. We believe that social change starts with small decisions, and we're committed to helping build infrastructure for the new economy of makers.
