The best brand stories are the ones that evolve completely organically. Such is the case with Postalco. It began in Brooklyn when husband and wife team Mike and Yuri Abelson decided to partner their product and graphic design skills.
After creating their signature “pigeon carrier” logo and designing their first samples, they couldn’t find the right factory stateside to deliver the quality they wanted. However on a visit to Japan to see Yuri’s family, her sister suggested a skilled craftsman in the Asakusa district of Tokyo. He turned out to be exactly what they needed, and the missing piece of the puzzle was in place. They ended up moving production of Postalco items to Japan and eventually relocated their entire company there too.
Presently, Postalco makes a wide array refined leather wallets, document holders/envelopes, handsome stationery and a full range of sensible and stylish products that traipse the thin line between modern and vintage. The pieces are crafted to be functionally superior and age well over the years.
