HOW DID KIPLNG ALL START?
Kipling Live Light was created in Antwerp in the Spring of ’87 by three passionate designers. The crinkled nylon fabric is strong, light and colourful. Becasue Kipling are affordable, sporty and functional bags and lifestyle essentials they are now a wardrobe favorite for women in 65 countries across the world.
WHERE DOES THE NAME COME FROM?
The Jungle Book was written by the well-traveled English author Rudyard Kipling. The 3 designers felt Kipling and his classic tale perfectly summed up their spirit of fun and adventure. So it made perfect sense to share that spirit with their brand of bags and accessories with the name Kipling Live Light.
WHAT ABOUT THE MONKEYS?
With a name synonymous with imaginative animals Kiplng Live Light needed a playful spirit to always shine through, hence the iconic furry mascot Monkey was born. Each Monkey is named after one of our amazing employees and is attached to almost everything we make.
Since 2006, in a shared spirit of playful adventure Kipling Live Light has collaborated with exciting young designers including Cathy Pill (Belgium), El Delgado Buil (Spain), Gloria Coelho (Brazil), Girls from Omsk (Belgium), Helena Christensen (Denmark) and Peter Pilotto (UK).
