Just in the past year the famous Japanese bags brand Porter has found its way to North American shores and now it has arrived at Blackbird. Since 1961 Porter has been an absolute staple for Japanese men looking for quality goods for day-to-day use. Their bags are made in a wide variety of materials, closely studied with strength and durability in mind. From fine leathers and organic cottons to high-tech polyester blend creations, the Porter collection has a "look" suited for anyone in any style you can imagine; luggage, shoulder bags, messenger bags, totes, waist bags, wallets, coin purses, key cases, etc.

Porter offers dozens of categories of fabrics, of which we have one available at the moment in Blackbird. More will also be coming in the near future, so keep an eye on the blog!

Porter Smoky "blends the natural appearance of cotton with the sharp touch of nylon. Made of unique Cordura Duck, which is obtained by weaving organic cotton from Zimbabwe with Cordura nylon yarn, Smoky series are extremely long lasting and resistant to abrasion, tears, and scuffs. Its appeal is in the casual appearance of its material: similar to denim, but significantly more durable, it will age beautifully adding character to the bags." - Porter
