Once upon a time , there were three passionate and enterprising men in Antwerp: Paul Van de Velde, Vincent Haverbeke, and Xavier Kegels in 1987 who were inspired to create their own business by using a monkey as their iconic brand. They were enthusiastically keen by the idea of publishing business adventure after an accident inspiration came to their mind. 

They were fascinate by Rudyard Kipling, the author of The Jungle Book, whose stories were presenting the spirit of fun and adventure. Monkeys, as one of imaginative animals created by Rudyard Kipling were the ideal representative to picture the playful spirit which always shine through. The three men were eagerly wanted to bring the classic tale of Kipling into reality. And Voila! Kipling was born in bags and accessories. 


Iconic Monkey

Kipling has become the iconic furry mascot which makes the brand stand for fun, positivism, happiness, joyful and the enjoyment of life.. The manner in which the monkey hangs from trees with its tail is suggestive of the way a handbag hangs from a woman's shoulder. Each season up to 80 unique monkeys in different colour are released, and each collection has its very own unique monkey named after a Kipling employee somewhere in the world, making each one an irreplaceable collection.
