The simple philosophy, a bag for everyone, has been kept by Manhattan Portage since 1983. Now it is certainly ringing true. From Montreal to Melbourne and Stockholm to San Francisco, Manhattan Portage's line of bags are indeed everywhere and carried by everyone.
The Manhattan Portage line has developed to serve all walks and runs of urban life. The variety of stores that sell Manhattan Portage bags also speaks to their varied clientele. Luggage, leather, bicycle, shoes, clothing, and even variety and gift stores all carry Manhattan Portage bags. With their Red logo, 1000 Denier Cordura Nylon, Delrin hardware, and a style selection including laptop bags, messenger bags, backpacks and more, Manhattan Portage bags don't hide and won't be going away any time soon. The emergence of competitors and innumerable imitators hasn't fazed them, but rather left Manhattan Portage celebrating this ultimate sign of trend triumph.
Although Manhattan Portage has received press in New York Times, People, Newsweek, and the Village Voice, their media coverage is not what has fueled their resounding success. It is their versatility, durability, and adaptability that has allowed them to survive the ebb and flow of mercurial fashion tides. So don't settle for an inferior product, get the real thing and treat yourself or a loved one to an authentic Manhattan Portage bag.
Manhattan Portage bags have been manufactured since 1983. Our manufacturing philosophy is to carefully design and refine each new bag, then personally inspect and select all materials. MP uses the best goods and the latest in hardware, such as YKK custom zippers and the highest grade of nylon available in the market today, called 1000 Denier Cordura, from Invista.
Over the years, Manhattan Portage bags have become more complex to build and continue to require extensive labor. In this age of global economy, it is not sustainable for them to make their bags in New York any more. Regardless of where the bags are manufactured, they are committed to maintaining the quality and integrity of their products by only using the highest quality materials.
