A special note from our president, Jen:

Thirty-two years ago, my parents started CALPAK with a mission to create quality bags at accessible prices for everyone. It has been amazing to see the growth and support from all of you, and as an Asian American family owned business, we'd love to continue that support by celebrating the AAPI community.

Below are some digital resources to explore and learn about AAPI history, and where to best make charitable donations to create change in the future.

We hope this moment inspires you to celebrate the AAPI community with us. Thanks again for your support!
