SCOUT Bags is a fast-growing Washington, DC-based brand known for stylish, functional, affordable bags. Our versatile products are designed to help modern women contain, organize, and carry all the stuff they—and their families—need to navigate and celebrate their busy days and lives.
Co-founded in 2004 by former Vogue editor and celebrity stylist Deb Waterman Johns, and her entrepreneur husband Ben Johns, SCOUT has become a cult-classic, known for its original, limited-edition patterns and versatile designs. With nearly four decades of experience in the fashion industry, Deb’s refined eye and creative vision is the driving force behind the dynamic SCOUT brand. Recently featured on the Today Show, Good Morning America, Oprah Magazine, and USA Today (to name a few), SCOUT aspires to be a national lifestyle brand known as the lifelong quintessential bag source for modern women.
A few other things to know: SCOUT products—bags, accessories, coolers, storage, rugs, and more—are available online and through hundreds of retailer partners nationwide. Giving back is built into our DNA—as is a sense of humor and a commitment to authenticity and approachability. To this point, we only use employees and friends of the brand as models in our marketing materials.
