Courtney Reenstra and Meagan Coomber.
Meagan Coomber of Montclair and Courtney Reenstra of Hoboken are the women behind Birdling Bags, a company that offers stylish, high-quality, made in NJ travel bags.
Longtime childhood friends, the two women decided to start their own business just a couple of years ago after Courtney complained about the hassle she had packing for a trip with her then 9 month old baby in tow. Frustrated with unorganized bags, she went to Meagan with an idea for a stylish, compartmentalized bag. The two decided to start their own venture and Birdling Bags was hatched.
Birdling Bags is a truly local company. The bags are created by NJ born and raised women and manufactured in Union City, NJ. Coomber and Reenstra also hire locally to promote their bags —both Montclair photographer Natalie Chitwood and Essex Fells photographer Audrey Blake Breheney have helped create gorgeous product and lifestyle photos.
