flip & tumble was founded in 2007 by designers Eva Bauer and Hetal Jariwala who met while attending Stanford’s Product Design program. The duo teamed up when they both saw an unmet need around the use of reusable bags.  After much work delving into the reasons of why people often forgot their reusable bags, their first bag, the 24-7 bag, was born. Since then, their line has expanded to include a variety of lightweight compactable bags all meticulously designed for real life on the go.
