Porter - Yoshida & Co's history dates back to 1935, when Kichizo Yoshida set up his workshop. Yoshida's vision was to produce the best bags possible, and he believed that Japanese craftsmen were the best in the world. The company's slogan is 'heart and soul in every stitch', and has stuck with the company throughout its entire history. Usually, each bag is produced by one craftsman from beginning to end, and the aim is to constantly improve the process over time. These are some of the best bags in the world for us.
