Handmade luxury backpacks

Portamus the brand is the culmination of over 20 years of experience from bag designer Ben Patton. Ben set out to create the perfect classic handmade backpack. Beautiful to look at, made in small batches, fit for purpose and made to last.  Each backpack is made from the finest materials. All meticulously thought through and crafted using age old techniques to create perfect walking backpacks.

From his workshop in Nailsworth, each bag is truly hand made by Ben's own hands. From his hands to yours as we like to say. Timeless in style and construction. Portamus harks back to classic designed backpacks that mountaineers may have used in days yore. Intrepid explorers scaling new slopes and faces. Nowadays you may not be using your Portamus to climb the Matterhorn but as each is made from the finest British waxed cotton, it will serve you more than well whatever adventure you begin.

The Portamus name derives from latin 'We carry' and Ben certainly hopes that his beautiful bags will help you carry all you need through vale and valley.
