Ever wonder how a Future Glory bag comes to life? Here's your chance to find out. Founder Theresa Lee is opening up her Dogpatch workshop on Friday, October 6 as part of SFMade's MFG Day.

Future Glory is part of San Francisco's growing design movement, and it's kind of a big deal. The brand's most famous bag, the Rockwell, has been featured by tons of glossies like Vogue, Glamour, Elle, InStyle, and Marie Claire. This year, San Francisco magazine named Lee as one of the designers to watch in the city. 

Lee started the company out of her apartment in 2013 with a focus on producing locally and supporting social causes. She runs an apprenticeship program to train economically disadvantaged women how to make handbags, and donates a portion of her revenue back to charity. The majority of Future Glory products are produced in Lee's Dogpatch studio and most of the materials are sourced domestically. 

Tickets for the tour are available on Eventbrite, and they're only $5. The tour will start promptly at 3:30 pm and conclude at 4:15. Ditch work a little early this Friday, learn how the Future Glory magic happens, and (maybe) walk away with a new bag of your own.
