YNOT is a Toronto team creating quality bags and accessories. Driven by innovation – we design for life on and off the beaten path. Our products are made in Canada and built to stand the test of time.
Established in 2009, founder Tony Mammoliti started experimenting and designing bike gear he felt was lacking in the cycling industry. Initially, a small garage studio was set up in the back alley of Toronto's iconic Croft Street. At local cycling events bike messengers and FGFS riders began getting their hands on YNOT products, and started putting them through their paces. Over time, a die-hard DIY crew of like-minded designers were brought together, and the YNOT product line evolved and expanded.
YNOT headquarters are located in a warehouse in the Junction area of Toronto known for its industrious working class and manufacturing history. YNOT now ships to over 40 countries and many retailers. The amazing YNOT crew continue to push the company forward, driven by a passion to create unique and functional products for people that use and depend on them every day.
All of our bags and accessories are handmade in Canada. From design to prototyping to manufacturing and shipping, every stage of our production is done in-house, here in Toronto. Much of our fabric and plastic hardware is made in the United States, and some material is even made in Canada! Apparel items (hats, shirts) are generally finished in our factory (logo applied), but country of origin varies (check label).
