All Good Things Come to an End

After 14 years of making custom bags, Better Life Bags closed our doors on April 1st, 2023. Thank you for the memories.

Your Purchases Created Opportunities for Local Women

Better Life Bags was founded to provide women in our local community of Detroit, MI safe employment. Everyone, especially mothers, deserves access to a flexible work environment that pays a fair living wage with annual raises. 

Since 2010, founder Rebecca and loyal BLB customers have worked diligently to create a work family that gives local women a chance to succeed in life, family, and friendship. 

While we are no longer taking custom orders, the impact of what we created together will continue on.

"The quality is amazing and the choices are endless!"

"I have my 5th BLB and wallet on order and I’m so excited to get it! The quality is amazing and the choices are endless! I actually go to the “design your own bag” page often just for fun 😂 The best part is feeling good about your purchases knowing you are giving back to the community. I tell everyone about BLB!" - Cindy
