Made Overseas and Assembled in Canada

Approximately 80% of our bags and panniers are handmade at our headquarters in Sherbrooke, Quebec.

The rest of our products require special machinery and are ethically manufactured by experts in Asia. Click here to learn more about our ethical manufacturing process. Arkel also 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. Click here to learn more about our community empowerment.
