The inspiration for Temple Bags is quite religious and and goes back to the idea of starting with a pile of worthless material, adding value by building a bag from it and finally making it priceless by adding your personal items – books, laptop, camera – your life in it.

Steve Opperman uses found, donated or old beat up materials to make bags and accessories with rips and imperfections with a fantastic vintage look and a high quality. — …because there is a good chance that He loves us just the way we are, emotionally broken, bruised and beat up. —

Enjoy the Temple Bags blog/site with nice pictures of the handmade bags and some good inspiration!
