The Mission is where they design, develop, and work in San Francisco.
In 2009, down an alleyway surrounded by taquerias and dive bars, they rolled up their sleeves and got to work refurbishing an old warehouse to call home. After months of being covered in steel splinters, sheet rock dust, and moldy insulation, they cut the ribbon on our shiny new workspace and Mission Workshop was born.
The workshop was created out of the desire to build gear as tough as it is beautiful. It’s this pursuit that hooked them from the beginning and has kept them at it for more than 25 years. Their full history goes way back to 1994 when co-founder Mark Falvai and good friend Doug Hudson started the company called Chrome and helped spark an entire movement in lifestyle-driven technical cycling apparel and bags.
For MW, it’s always been about product. Be it the original MTB riding short, launched back in 94 with Chrome, their first MW pack called the Vandal, or the modular Arkiv pack system, they are always striving to push things forward and create products that make the day to day a bit better for those that invest in and use their gear.
