Kipling pride themselves on creating fashionable, affordable and practical baggage for everyday adventures. Using a characteristic crinkled nylon, their bags are casual and light in their feel, and stylish in their appearance. A wide range of products offered from shoulder bags to purses and wheeled luggage. Their passion for fun is emulated in their iconic monkey key-hanger mascot that makes their products instantly recognizable, as well as appealing to all generations.
In 1987 three young designers from Antwerp came across a crinkled nylon fabric, created by mistake in a factory. Seizing the originality of the idea, they created the now well-known, women’s lifestyle baggage brand that is currently stocked in 65 countries worldwide. Inspiration for the name came from the essence of fun that the creators wanted to bring to the brand, which they felt was captured in The Jungle Book by the famous English author Rudyard Kipling. Notoriously, the Kipling brand fashioned this playfulness into the Kipling Monkey icon that is present on all products as a mascot. Each icon is named after Kipling employees and has now encompassed collectable editions such as the Royal Baby Monkey. Encouraging freedom and adventure, Kipling have collaborated with other up and coming designers from around the globe including special collections by Gloria Coelho (Brazil) and Girls from Omsk (Belgium).
