"Defy or Die." It's not just a motto, but a mantra at Defy Bags. Compelled to leave the comforts of an established advertising career, Chicago art director Chris Tag founded Defy Bags in 2008 to build something truly unique. What started as a one man show has become a workplace staffed with world-class craftspeople, seamstresses, designers, leather experts, and more. Each Defy Bag is handcrafted in the U.S. with high quality materials and is truly built to last.
