Headquartered in Sherbrooke since 1988, Arkel makes and distributes a variety of bicycle bags such as panniers, bikepacking bags, backpack and handlebar bags. Approximately 80% of our products are handsewn in our main office. The rest of our products require special machinery and are ethically manufactured by experts in Asia. Since 2003, Arkel participates in a social service program for folks with intellectual disabilities and disorders. When a pannier is near completion, the gang from CRDITED Estrie goes to work assembling the finishing touches.
