Not many founders resort to promises of marriage and naming a brand after a potential employee in order to get the right staff but for Jansport, this is how the right people came together to create one of the world's leading luggage brands. Established in the late 1960's, Murray Pletz and Skip Yowell joined forces to make quality backpacks but were missing an essential component in the machine - a sewing expert. Jan Lewis was Pletz girlfriend at the time and with the right words he managed to coax her on board. But while the couple split, the company stayed together and Pletz left leaving the brand to grow.
Today, Jansport is world renowned for its groundbreaking designs and offering a superb range of Jansport Luggage solutions for everyone to enjoy.

Today, the brand has dedicated a whole line of products to the very people that helped it grow into such as reputable label, and at Blackleaf.com we’re proud to bring them to you. anSport bags don’t need gimmicks and flashy design to attract students, the name speaks for itself these days.
