Check out this video from the opening party last week for the launch of Manhattan Portage in Carnival Stores in Bangkok!
A spinoff of ULTRACICILI – BICICLETTE MODERNE PENSATE A MANO (Tailored Modern Bicycles), the opening of a flagship store in Milan named ULTRACICLI has been the natural evolution with the purpose of becoming a point of reference for the urban cycling lifestyle.
Manhattan Portage is their latest addition and now offers a unique selection of authentic messenger bags dedicated to cycling enthusiasts.
PIAZZA RISORGIMENTO, 3 – 20129 MILANO
Manhattan Portage has teamed up with the Camp Zama Scouts in their Earthquake response effort. We produced 500 custom Go Japan! Backpacks that will be filled with comfort items for children who have been displaced because of the massive earthquake that rocked Japan earlier this year. These bags will be given out to school children full of shampoo, underwear, socks, toys, comic books, and origami cranes.
You can follow (and donate) to their relief effort by becoming a fan on their Facebook.
Manhattan Portage bags are now available on our newly launched German website!
Named after the Famous Mt. Rainier Volcano in Washington State, MP has teamed with Mt. Rainier Design Works on a series of bags exclusively made for the Japanese market.Mt. Rainer Design works is a new brand, that does manufacture their quality fabric in the USA.
These bags are made using special 60/40 cotton/nylon blend fabric which features the strengths and qualities of both materials.Â This special fabric does breath like cotton, but is stretchable like nylon.Â Not only that, but when exposed to moisture, the cotton threads expand to seal the space in between the nylon weave, providing a degree of natural wind and water resistance.
This 60/40 also has a unique reflective appearance and a smooth yet elastic texture.Â The dye gradually fades with use, providing a vintage look and unique identity for each and every bag.
