THE ANDI STORY
The concept for ANDI was born in 2010; Andrea Weinberg (aka Andi) was living in New York City pursuing her degree while working full time and keeping up with an extensive travel schedule and some semblance of a social life. She wanted a bag that could support her – all weather, all occasion, all the time.
Inspired by her studies of human-focused design processes, Andi spent five years working with a small factory in Brooklyn making over 60 iterations of her concept for a light-weight, durable, active, travel, transformer bag that is the ANDI that we know today.
The ANDI team is comprised of like-minded individuals across many disciplines who effort every day to deliver great product to our customers. Most ANDIs are made in Taiwan (some are made in the New York area). In addition to pioneering technical fabrics, Taiwan’s strict environmental and labor standards make it a great fit for ANDI. Our factory in Taiwan was carefully chosen for both quality and values, and they are like family to us (Andi has a working knowledge of Mandarin).
Multi-functional. Multi-faceted. Multi-purpose.
