The Kipling story is one of great passion, creativity and entrepreneurial spirit. It all started in 1987 in a small flat in Antwerp, Belgium - one of the world’s fashion capitals. Three keen enthusiasts decided to make their entrance into the fashion world with a trendy yet affordable collection of bags made of our signature crinkled nylon material.
Armed with a strong brand, a powerful image, and an extensive range of super trendy, practical and high-quality bags, Kipling has been busy conquering the world over the last 30 plus years.
Today, Kipling plays a part in the everyday life of millions of customers in more than 80 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.
