Why is the company called ChicoBag?

ChicoBag Company is nestled in the northern California town of Chico.

Where are ChicoBag products made?

The majority of our products are manufactured in China with partners we trust to do business the right way. While manufacturing in China has a rocky reputation, we believe that it’s not where it’s made, it’s how it’s made that matters. We are proud to do business with great partners who are committed to providing high-quality, ethically-made products.

We actively support fair labor and workplace standards throughout our entire supply chain. The Fair Labor Association (FLA) works collaboratively with colleges and universities, NGOs, and socially responsible companies to improve the working conditions in factories around the world. ChicoBag is a Category C licensee of the FLA. We visit our suppliers and conduct both announced and unannounced independent, third-party audits to ensure compliance with the Principles of Fair Labor and Responsible Sourcing and the FLA Workplace Code of Conduct. We hope to instill confidence and assurances with our growing community of customers and stakeholders that we are managing the environmental and social issues associated with the manufacturing of all products we sell.

Does ship internationally?

Yes we do! We ship internationally via USPS. Shipping charges will be dependent on location and shipping service selected.
