The Kipling story is one of great passion, creativity and entrepreneurial spirit. It all started in 1987 in a small flat in Antwerp, the city of fashion. Three keen enthusiasts decided to make their entrance into the fashion world with a trendy yet affordable collection of bags. Armed with a strong brand, a powerful image, and an extensive range of fashionable, practical and high quality bags, Kipling has been busy conquering the world over the last 20 years. Or as the British quality newspaper The Herald Tribune puts it : 'Kipling has taken the bag world by storm'. So what is their mascot? It is a popular little monkey dangling from each bag. This Belgian brand is now firmly established. Kipling plays a part in the everyday life of more than 40 million women in 64 countries throughout the world. Their Kipling accompanies them on their way to work, on their shopping trips, whilst playing sports, at work, and on their evenings out. No wonder because Kipling bags are simply unique. They are not only super trendy but they are also of high quality, practical and affordable.
