About Swoop Bags

The Swoop Story

Thirty years ago, my grandmother gave my brother a handmade storage bag for his heaping pile of Lego® pieces. Years later, when my own son got knee-deep into Lego®, my mom remembered that bag and made a similar one for my boys. Friends would come over to our house and say, “WOW! Where did you get that bag?” The idea of Swoop Bags was born. (You can read the full story on our BLOG)

Today, I give you SWOOP BAGS – a re-imagined, modern version of the original bag my grandmother made. As a graphic designer who loves and breathes modern design and as a busy mother of two Lego-loving kids, I sought out to create a bag that was modern in style, simple in use, and durable in design. Our large Swoop Bags not only make cleanup time a breeze with the tug of a drawstring, they also double as a play mat when opened and spread out on the floor, allowing easy access to small pieces. They are made from 100% cotton canvas and durable nylon cording. Our Swoop Minis, made from tough, water-resistant material (think back-pack material) are our portable, travel-size version of the large bag – perfect for kids and families on the go. Who said you couldn’t take your favorite Lego pieces to the beach?

Swoop Bags are durabledesigned to last, and guaranteed for life. Available in bold, bright, fun colors, our bags are stylish enough to stash in any room of the house. All our products are proudly made right here in Seattle, too!

“Just SWOOP it up!”
