Brand Documentary Magazine No 17 Porter

In 1935, a Japanese bag craftsman, Kichizo Yoshida established Yoshida & CO. LTD. which introduced its own bag brand, Porter, later in 1962. Today, all employees of the Japanese bag company are making their commitments to making bags that adequately serve the primary purpose - carrying items, while continuing the legacy of the founder.

 B Magazine dedicates each issue to the story of one specific brand, which is one of the well-balanced brands that JOH. discovers from around the world based on four standards: beauty, practicality, price, and philosophy. And each issue is packed with B™s unique insights and in-depth analysis. 

B Magazines receives no advertising profits or financial support from the brands it introduces.
