We are so exited to have these beautiful bicycle bags in the shop!  Lovely Lydia Design is the brainchild of new Portland-based designer Kristen Reid.  Inspired by the city of Portland’s biking culture, Kristen loves to cruise the city streets on her bicycle.  Whether biking to neighborhood establishments or just out for a leisure ride, it didn’t take long for her to realize she needed a better means for packing her daily necessities while riding.  What began as a mission to find a fashionable handlebar bag turned into a dead end as she was unable to find anything that complemented the look of her bicycle.  Kristen eventually gave in and decided that designing and sewing her own bag was the only solution.

As a frequent rider herself, Kristen knows the importance of both functionality and style, so she incorporates both of those elements in all of her designs.  As a native of the Northwest, Kristen also realizes the importance  of sustainability, so whenever possible she sources locally and recycles her scrap fabric.
