About Swoop Bags

swoop production

Made in Seattle, WA 

This is Swoop Bags production place in the SODO district of Seattle since 2011. Swoop wouldn't be Swoop without these guys. Their quality of sewing and attention to detail is top notch. We wouldn't have it any other way. 

Small Business

My boys who have been a big part of my business since day one. They have been my models for photoshoots & videos, my extra set of "testers" for bag designs and occasionally help count inventory and pack up orders.


the swoop bags story about

My grandmother Betsy - the inspiration behind Swoop Bags. She was a woman of style and simplicity. She created this toy bag (the one on the left) for my brother and his Lego collection in the 1970s. I redesigned and modernized her bag in 2011 (the one the right). You can read the whole story below.


The Swoop Story

Thirty years ago (1978), my grandmother gave my brother a handmade toy bag for his heaping pile of Legos. Years later, when my own son got knee-deep into Lego (2011), my mom remembered that bag and made a similar one for my boys (read the entire story on our BLOG). Friends would come over to our house and say, “WOW! Where did you get that bag? What a fantastic idea to help contain the crazy Lego mess!” Right then the idea of Swoop Bags was born. 

Launched in 2011, SWOOP BAGS – are a re-imagined, modern version of the original toy bag my grandmother made. As a graphic designer who loves and breathes modern design and a busy mother of two Lego-loving kids, I sought out to create a bag that was modern in style, simple to use, and very well made. Quality and using the best fabric and materials has always been our #1 priority. We wanted to design a product that would lasts a life time and be passed down through generations.

Swoop Bags are designed to make cleanup time easy and simple. Every Swoop has a 6" edge piece to help contain small toys. Our large bags function as a toy storage solution as well as a playmat that kids can play around. The Original Bags are made from 100% cotton canvas and our Super Bags and Mini Bags are made from durable, tough, water-resistant fabric that is guaranteed for life. 

Our Swoop Mini Bags are our portable, travel-size bag – ideal for toys, art supplies, makeup, snacks & lunches and collections of all sorts. Who said you couldn’t take your favorite Lego pieces to the beach or on a long car ride? 

Our bags come in bold, bright, fun colors and are stylish enough to stash in any room of the house. All of our products are proudly made right here in Seattle - USA.
