  • Neu bei Asphaltgold: Porter-Yoshida & Co.

    Welcome to Asphaltgold, Porter-Yoshida & Co.

    It was a key experience that gave rise to Porter-Yoshida & Co. When the Great Kanto Earthquake completely destroyed the home of Kichizo Yoshida in 1923, the then 17-year-old Japanese used a simple cord to carry his belongings to safety. This experience made Yoshida realize the importance of transportation and led him to establish Brand Yoshida Kaban Seisakujo in 1935. The success of the bag brand quickly materialized, leading to the creation of the Porter subbrand in 1962, specializing in bags for travelers. We are pleased to offer Porter-Yoshida & Co. now at Asphaltgold!

    The products of Porter-Yoshida & Co. are mainly characterized by their timeless design and the very high quality manufacturing. Until today all bags are handmade in Japan. Nylon, canvas and leather are the preferred materials of Porter-Yoshida & Co. - because the bags are designed to last a lifetime.

    Porter-Yoshida & Co: Craftsmanship meets Fashion and Streetwear

    Monochrome colors, simple designs and clear shapes ensure that Porter Bags are not dependent on fashion trends, regular updates and collaborations with brands like Stüssy, adidas, Takashi Murakami and Pas Normal Studios bring variety and diverse influences to the collections.

    The bags of PORTER-YOSHIDA & CO are characteristically very unagitated and thus flexibly combinable. Inspired by classic MA-1 flight jackets of the US Air Force, the Tanker series is made of a cotton-nylon-polyester mix that ensures both a good wearing feel, low weight and long durability at the same time.
