Toynbee Carriage Co designs and builds useful items that help urbanites get around the city with their necessities. We strive to source local manufacturing whenever possible, and to make our products approachable by those who value quality.
The Spokebug, Selector, and Tuning Fork are the first designs to embody our focus of helping folks carry things around without the need of a motor vehicle. That's how the 'carriage' got into our name - it references the old use of the word, a 'means of conveyance'.
Toynbee is supporting not just design for 'active transportation', but design for local manufacturing. Our products are developed with the capabilities of regional fabricators in mind. Manufacturing is done at fabrication shops here in Chicago whenever possible, and further out into the States when it's not. Saying USA-Made is about more than pride, it's about a sense of obligation.
