Story

Our tale is one of great passion and creativity (plus the odd stroke of luck!) that goes back to the spring of '87. That as the year when three young designer pals in Antwerp stumbled upon a happy accident on a loom and discovered crinkled nylon fabric... and voila, the idea for Kipling was born. Having hit upon a winning formula they wasted no time in creating the affordable, sportly and functional bags and lifestyle essentials that have gone on to become wardrobe favourites for women in 65 countries across the world.
