Created in 1987 in Antwerp by accident, Kipling are now a global phenomenon. The idea for Kipling came about when three young designers discovered the crinkled nylon fabric which gives Kipling its signature finish. Having found the material, the friends created a line of sports inspired, functional bags.
When deciding on a name for their creation, they settled upon the surname of Rudyard Kipling, the author of the iconic Jungle Book, as they felt book summed up the fun and playful nature of their creations. The monkey emblem also stems from the book, carrying on the playful vibes. The Kipling monkeys are all named after employees and Kipling now sell the monkeys separately and in themed collections.
Over the last ten years, Kipling have collaborated with some of the greats, from Helena Christensen to Peter Pilotto, to create unique and standout designs.
