A passion for exploring the world and learning from diverse nature and cultures. We love going on adventures that challenge and push us out of our comfort zones, but we also love taking relaxing and rejuvenating trips. We always make sure to have our next trip in the pipeline, even if it's a staycation. It works like an instant endorphin shot, and who doesn't like that?
The big L—love—for the planet we live on n and for which we want to make a difference. We know that a little goes a long way. The travel product industry uses a massive amount of plastic and contributes to a growing culture of "disposable mindsets."
We've certainly taken part in the overconsumption and fast fashion industry. We are not proud of it, but luckily we've learned a lot since then and have slowly changed our habits. Through this journey, we realized there were no good alternatives for travel products. With KIN, we wanted to create what we found
missing—a brand of products developed for mindful travelers. By focusing on using the materials with the smallest carbon footprint possible, we find ways to positively impact the earth without compromising quality, experience, or design.
Frustration... We were tired of buying new suitcases only for them to break on their first trip. We were tired of using big bags that got our things soaked (hello Europe) and never being able to find the things we actually needed. We were also keen for something timeless that wouldn't go out of season and would always compliment our ever-changing wardrobe.
We've mixed it all up, given it a good stir, and sprinkled some creativity on top to create what is now
We believe that traveling is good for both mind and soul and, in some situations, a necessity. It fuels us with inspiration and teaches us about the world and its many inhabitants. However, compared to just a few years ago, there is a more thoughtful way of traveling; that movement is why we are here!
We have used all our products and tested them to ensure they can handle whatever their
trips throw at them. We have worked hard to get the highest quality and provide
products that can last many years.
...and be a part of changing the traveling industry into a more sustainable one - while making your travels more practical and stylish.
Now for the real question; Where is your next travel destination, and doesn't a grand adventure deserve the company of a great bag?
