RED STAGGERWING was born simply enough — with one bag. Seeking a new creative outlet to nurture her love of fabric, Lisa DeMio tried her hand at sewing a messenger bag. Just like *that* she was hooked and was soon fielding requests to make bags for others. Within a few months she was selling her handmade creations at local markets in New Hampshire.
Ten years in, Red Staggerwing is still going strong with a bustling online shop and dozens of wholesale accounts across the US. The classic pieces are hand made from start to finish, now with the help of a small, all-women team perfecting their craft in a sun-filled New Hampshire studio.
Inspired by her Scandinavian heritage, local flora, and lots of color, Lisa personally designs all of Red Staggerwing’s signature pieces. The limited edition collections feature hand-printed linen, leather, cotton, and waxed canvas — sourcing high-quality, durable materials from independent businesses is a priority for the team, as they strive to create classic pieces that hold up to everyday use.
Lisa can almost always be found in her studio, surrounded by bolts of color, drafting plans for new products, and sharing the latest styles on social media. #CarryYourColor
