Using our flair for design and innovation, Mapac entered the Art industry in the mid 90s. Quickly establishing a reputation for quality, value and service, the Mapac range became an overnight success. In 2006 Mapac took over Artcare, their biggest competitor in the Art industry and became Europes leading supplier of Artist luggage. Today, the Artcare by Mapac brand of portfolios, cases, display books, sleeves and accessories can be found throughout Europe.


Following the incredible success of the Mapacs bookbag range, the Mapac team thought about what other uses there were for this type of bag and came up with our eye catching range of Music bags. The Mapac Music Bag range is distributed throughout Europe and our bags have been reproduced in many languages.


Mapacs corporate division supply corporate clothing and uniform to companies ranging in size from 6-6000. We are proud to have recently designed and supplied the “Garden Centre Group” with their entire staff uniform which involved a roll out of over 70,000 garments to 120 centres.
