Donna "The Bag Lady" Altieri
at Altieri Instrument Bags World Headquarters
Altieri Instrument Bags is a couture
workshop based in Denver, Colorado USA. For the past 30 years Altieri
has been creating custom bags that combine the best
materials with original designs that protect the instruments of musicians
The company was started by Donna Altieri on the
request of a musician who was looking for a way to 'schlep' his
Tuba around town with less hassle. His inspiration led Altieri to
become the first producer of instrument bags that added straps that
convert a hand-held or
shoulder-strap bag into a true backpack. She was also one of the
first to make musician's bags out of fabric instead of leather, and
to use advanced materials for insulation and padding.
Altieri's customers include high
school and college music students, serious amateur musicians, professional
jazz and symphony
musicians and music teachers. Keeping her business small and in Denver
has allowed the company to control costs and quality, and to focus
on the customization necessary to meet the need of the serious musician.
Altieri Instrument Bags are constructed
of durable, heavy gauge nylon packcloth with weatherproof coating
on the outside
shell, and use heavy duty zippers, drawstrings, buckles, and hardware.
Gigbag liners are built from custom-quilted ripstop
nylon to provide a soft, scratch free surface next instruments and
cases. Casecovers feature our hi-tech, 4-layer insulating
Every Altieri bag is created with
an exquisite attention to detail, and include features you are not likely
in any other bag at any price. All our bags are created in Colorado,
USA. As a custom shop, we are ready to listen to your ideas and requests.
