Postalco began in 2000 in Brooklyn, New York. Mike Abelson, who was a bag designer at the time, noticed that his wife Yuri, a graphic designer, was having difficulty carting around A4 size papers. He created an envelope-shaped case for her, using cloth and leather he happened to have on hand. That modest beginning led to the founding of Postalco, now known for their supreme utility and ineffable warmth blended with the beauty of understatement. Postalco’s products are carefully considered and beautifully made in Japan, meant to be used by anyone.
