District Grain is happy to announce we are now carrying another travel bag brand- Industry Portage Co.! Industry Portage Co., founded by New York City construction executive RJ Diaz in 2010, is an independent label based in New Jersey that produces original and finely crafted lifestyle, travel, and work bag designs. All products are designed with a focus on quality, utility, and durability.
About the Founder
With an education in architecture and passion for industrial, product, and interior design, founder and design director RJ Díaz has developed a line of bags inspired by his experience in the high-end renovation industry spanning nearly 20 years. His passion for the outdoors, travel, and the arts also figure as major influences to his designs. In 2010, RJ immersed himself in the study of materials and methods to produce finely crafted high quality carry goods at a reasonable price.
“As a functional and utilitarian item, exceptional bags can be analogous to great architecture: it must provide a pragmatic solution and do it in a beautiful way.”
To help introduce Industry Portage Co., we would like to feature one of our favorite bags, the Industry Portage Classic Navy Duffel. Built with sturdy 20 oz. canvas, suede handles, trim and strapping. A one-piece water resistant ballistic nylon bottom keeps your bag safe from inside and outside spills. The classic duffel encompasses two zippered and three open outside pockets, giving you peace of mind by organizing smaller items that require quick access (think: cash, keys, passport, or switchblade). The interior has two zippered pockets to organize larger items within. From overnights to three-day weekends, this duffel will pack it all. Click to shop the Industry Portage Classic Navy Duffel.
