The Kipling story is one of great passion, creativity and entrepreneurial spirit. In 1987 in Antwerp, Xavier Kegels and Paul van de Velde decided that women needed high-quality bags that were iconic and chic and feminine and fashionable and not boring! So they created a line of casual and colourful bags that were affordable, sporty and functional, packed with attitude but never serious or stuffy or stuck-up. In a word FUN!The company that started out making backpacks for school children has since expanded into high quality backpacks for women. Now the label boasts an extensive range which sells a casual image that screams fun and adventure. [+]
