I am Classic
Established in 2007 by Katsuyuki Yoshida and Reo Yoshida with a focus on ``Made in Japan'' and the concept of ``World Standard Standards''.
We pursue products that will be loved by the next generation and even our grandchildren, while working on tradition, antithesis, artistic culture, and craftsmanship.
Katsuyuki Yoshida is known for being the first Japanese person to be selected as a member of the New York Designers Collective, and has produced many masterpiece bags over the years, and has always been a leader in the bag and apparel industries. He founded Porter Classic with his son Reo Yoshida, saying, ``I want to create products that are a culmination of things, not just focusing on bags.''
Made in Japan
At our factory in Toyooka, which is famous for producing bags, our craftsmen take responsibility for everything from sewing to inspection, resulting in an extremely low return rate during production and boasting one of the highest quality products in Japan. We embody the concept of Porter Classic through our 20-year relationship.
We use our expert techniques to dye nylon products, which is considered difficult and time-consuming. It has both the uneven coloring of denim and the lightness and luster of nylon.
This denim series is made of high-quality and durable light-on denim fabric, accented with genuine indigo-dyed leather cord dyed with the natural dye ``Sukumo''.
The super nylon series has an attractive distressed look with uneven coloring similar to denim and fading due to uneven seam surfaces called puckering.
KENDO creates original fabrics based on the concept of creating items that can be passed down to the next generation. This is a series that symbolizes the brand, using indigo dyeing from the thread, which improves in texture and feel as you use it.
A linen fabric with a nappy feel that gets better the more you use it. Available in three colors: product-dyed indigo, black, and unbleached, this item is suitable for every occasion and every day.
The motif is sashiko, which was born from the ``heart of valuing things'' by layering cloth on the frayed parts and sewing them together. A series using original fabrics completed after 5 years of development and processing research.
A series based on orthodox canvas fabric, with classic details (net) sewn on the front and product dyed. Includes a pouch with the message "ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE" between the nets.
A series that uses "muatsu" shoulder straps that distribute weight based on ergonomics. By reducing the perceived weight of the person carrying the bag, it eases the burden on the body.
We are committed to "Made in Japan" and pursue products that will be loved by the next generation and even our grandchildren.
