Founded in 1935 by Kichizo Yoshida, Porter is a Japanese brand that creates utilitarian bags, each of which is handmade using high quality fabrics and components. Starting his training in bag construction at age twelve, Yoshida witnessed the destruction of the Great Kanto Earthquake, the aftermath of which inspired the creation of his bag brand. Survivors had to find efficient ways to carry life-saving items around, informing his notions of what a bag should be, ‘A bag should, first and foremost, be a tool for carrying goods’ – this was his motto when he opened his first Tokyo atelier in 1935.
In keeping with Yoshida’s original principal s, the design and manufacturing of all Porter bags and accessories are strictly made in Japan, so that Porter can monitor each aspect of the creation of its bags and to ensure the best originality, creativity and quality. Working with skilled craftsman and custom developed fabrics, much time and consideration is poured in to each collection, some of which have been in development for three years; such is Porter’s devotion to its excellence.
