Timberland keeps things exciting by collaborating with Porter, the main brand under Japanese bags manufacturer Yoshida & Company, who has a long history in luggage design and craftsmanship with a commitment to making products exclusively in Japan.
The collaboration represents an authentic exchange of different traditional craftsmanship skills and ideas between Timberland and Porter – comprising 2 pairs of Premium 6-inch boots made by Timberland and 4 bags made by Porter that are all crafted with the mix of Timberland’s iconic ‘nubuck’ leather and Porter’s iconic flight satin nylon fabric.
Adopting the color scheme of Porter’s iconic TANKER ORIGINAL bags series – Olive and Black with contrast Orange lining, the Timberland x Porter Premium 6-inch Boots have incorporated Porter bags’ details such as grey painted eyelets, grey ‘taslan’ shoelaces and Porter brand tag on the boots’ side panel, and are completed with a Vibram lug outsole for extra durability.
Also available in an Olive and a Black colorway, the Timberland x Porter bags come in the popular Daypack and 2-Way Boston Bag silhouettes. All bags are made by Porter’s signature 3-layer insulated flight satin nylon fabric with a contrast orange lining which is inspired by the MA-1 flight jacket, with the additional handle, side pocket panel and bottom details made with Timberland’s iconic Wheat nubuck leather. The bags also feature the quad-stitches detail – an iconic detail Timberland uses to make its boots waterproof.
The Timberland x Porter capsule collection is now available at the following Timberland stores in Malaysia – Mid Valley, Pavilion, Sunway Pyramid, One Utama, Genting Sky Avenue, KLCC & Sunway Velocity as well as Crossover Sunway Pyramid in very limited quantity.
