As an abandoned factory purchased in 1984, the building was all but a heap of ruins. The buyers had a vision for factory – one that could not be easily dismissed, despite all the wreckage and debris.
Revitalization of the building began by investing priceless hours of hard work and commitment. With each new artist’s entry, the Old Bag Factory took another breath, struggled less to stay alive.
Once again, the Old Bag Factory thrives on craft and commerce. The means and rate of production have changed, but the vision remains the same. Now, instead of transporting goods by train, the Old Bag Factory’s artists and merchants can send their crafts away in – what else? – shopping bags.
