Pierre Dabagh (left) opened his leather goods factory, Park Avenue Int’l (PAI), in 1982 shortly after escaping the raging civil war in his home country of Lebanon. PAI is now the last remaining factory of its size and capacity in NYC’s historic Garment District.
The factory perfectly represents the American Dream: with hard work & determination anything is possible. And the Dabagh’s pride themselves on the second-to-none craftsmanship – a quality that has earned them a quiet, behind-the-scenes reputation as go-to artisans for many well-known, global leather goods brands.
With the legacy now passed to Pierre’s son, Alex, ANYBAG was born and lives in the same leatherworking factory in NYC.
