In 1935, a Japanese bag craftsman named Kichizo Yoshida, established YOSHIDA & CO. LTD. The first bag brand created by that company in 1962 was PORTER. Today, YOSHIDA & CO. carries on the legacy of its founder, constantly striving for a single purpose—to make the best bags possible. With all its different styles and details, Porter reveals a bag’s true purpose—to simply carry your items. Mr. Yoshida often said, “a bag should first of all be a tool to carry goods.” Even with increased demand, Porter often decides not to increase production volume. This is done in order to maintain product quality and proper working conditions. All Porter bags to this day are hand-made using local suppliers in Japan. Staple holds the same values as Porter in our apparel collection and design work. Porter believes in “Heart and Soul in Every Stitch”. Staple believes in “A Positive Social Contagion.” Together, we are very proud to present this capsule collection for Holiday 2013. The 3-piece collection consists of a Rucksack, a Tote Bag and aWallet.
