Inspiration

deer

I established Industry Portage Co. in 2010 after deciding to explore my own design ideas for bags inspired by my background in architecture and work in the construction industry since 1995.  It was during these years that I gained an appreciation for talented architects and designers, as well as craftsmen skilled in their trade.  My goal was to create a product line that was stylish, functional, durable, and reasonably priced.  The bags are intended to serve many uses, lifestyles and applications. Qualitas, utilitas, and stabilitas speaks to my commitment to the quality, utility, and durability of all of our products.

IPC's inspirations range from such classic and diverse American brands such as Levi's, Red Wing, and Harley-Davidson to modern brands such as John Varvatos and Freeman's Sporting Club. Our designs are informed by diverse applications such as tool bags, photographer's bags, and expedition equipment. Local artisans, tailors and sewers make our custom-tailored and made-to-measure bags. We have also initiated an adaptive reuse program by designing bags using repurposed materials such as welder's suede jackets and canvas drop cloths, which supports our green initiatives and goals for decreasing our carbon footprint.
