Manhattan Portage

The Manhattan Portage brand began in 1980 as an idea whose time had come... make a bag for urban people who were always on the go that they could really depend on. That concept caught on first with Manhattan Portage for New York City messengers who needed a sturdy, reliable product that was as tough as the streets they traveled and became the now famous "Messenger" bag. Over the years, the original idea was expanded and Manhattan Portage wanted to make a bag for everyone that was practical, functional, trendy and very "New York." The Manhattan Portage brand now appears on bags for students, business people, travelers, teachers, and so many others. And the distinctive logo of the Manhattan Portage New York City skyline etched in white on a red background was becoming an icon in the urban landscape and beyond.

There was a simple philosophy that Manhattan Portage set out to achieve back in 1983, "New York Tough." Almost thirty years later it is certainly ringing true. From Montreal to Melbourne, Osaka to Oslo, and Stockholm to San Francisco, Manhattan Portage bags are indeed everywhere and carried by everyone. Manhattan Portage remains loyal to their NYC roots. Manhattan Portage has been able to avoid becoming another fleeting fad and withstand the test of time because Manhattan Portage bags do.

Every bag, backpack and briefcase and all Manhattan Portage product are constructed from the best materials, designed for the rigors of modern life and crafted with expert care. Manhattan Portage used the experience, skills, technical innovations and indeed, the success of the past three decades to expand and diversify Manhattan Portage products to meet the challenges and changes of the new century.

Manhattan Portage has been designing and producing hand made bags since 1983 and over the years gained a reputation for outstanding quality and detailed craftsmanship. So what makes Manhattan Portage bags so special? It all comes down to three basic things that must be done well: the design of the bag, the choice of components, and the overall construction & finishing of the bag during production. Out of these 3 tenets stems Manhattan Portages' manufacturing philosophy: to carefully design each new Manhattan Portage bag, to personally select and inspect all materials, and finally to ensure Manhattan Portage gets the construction and quality control right.
