Eastpak Bags were created in 1976 when student Mark Goldman convinced his father to start making a line of backpacks for students. EASTPAK has set the benchmark to which others refer and take pride in being recognised as an innovative, fun brand. EASTPAK was the first company to use Cordura for non-technical daypaks and to experiment with bright colours and prints in the early 80s. EASTPAK is seen as a leader in its field which is why creative icons like Van Beirendonk, Raf Simons and Eley Kishomoto selected EASTPAK as a partner above other Brands
