Since 2009, PORT Designs is No. 1 in the French market for "computer bags" and our aim is to replicate this across all of Europe and become the leading brand of computer bags.

The successful expansion towards, Latin America, Middle-East and Eastern Europe enabled PORT to export its expertise in those areas and promote our ‘Designed in Paris’ strap line.
