JOHN PETERS NEW YORK
Inside the depthless archives of New York Fashion news, one can find many references to the legendary JOHN PETERS NEW YORK.
They tell of how John Peters was one of the first backpack makers in history and helped invent the modern backpack as we know it today. Copies abound now, but Peters’ designs were essentially the original backpacks.
What these articles usually overlook is the dedication Peters had to the users of his bags, often the workers on the streets of New York City.
These were the bike messengers, the entertainers, the construction workers, and many more, those who needed reliable, well-built bags to carry their tools and cargo.
Peters’ legacy is the pride he took in providing fellow New Yorkers with his bags, now widely acclaimed far beyond their city of origin.
Peters’ dream is today being carried out by ULTIMEIK, which will bring the same comfort, quality and longevity passed down directly from the original New Yorkers’ backpack and messenger bag.
