Quality travel products that are designed thoughtfully, made sustainably, and brought to you by good people.
We are a minority owned family business that’s on a mission to inspire and empower people to go places, while leaving a positive impact on people's lives and the planet.
A Family Business
In 2010, Helen Lo had back issues and needed the perfect bag that kept up with her frequent travels, she set out to find it. Her 2 devoted sons Jan and Derek then ditched their respective day jobs in product design research and advertising (and nightly gigs as DJ’s) to help make Helen’s dream a reality.
Style Meets Smarts
High quality and thoughtfully designed travel products that not only perform well, but also look great.
With CEO, Jan Lo, leading the product design, every decision is intentional, and every feature is well-researched: from the strategically-placed pockets and convenient key leashes, to sleeves that allow travelers to slide their companion bags right onto their roller suitcases. Translation: less fumbling, more globetrotting.
Modern Yet Timeless Styles
We aren’t slaves to fashion, but we do believe in looking stylish. But we still want our products to be purposeful and helpful. So we’re constantly searching for that perfect combination of modernity and timelessness that make our products both versatile and useful for real life on the go.
For us, it’s not enough to “do no harm” when it comes to environmental impact. We are part of a growing movement that believes businesses can actually lead the way in reversing environmental damage and creating innovative solutions.

In addition to helping the planet, our mission is to also have a positive impact on people’s lives. We feel that our business should not only generate profits, but also do good in society. So we are continually partnering with non-profit organizations and trying as hard as possible to contribute to positive social issues that we believe in.
“The family-run company cofounded by Helen's sons, Jan and Derek, continues to manufacture travel accessories with thoughtful, human-centered design in mind.”
“Helen Lo had always been a frequent traveler, but with back problems, finding the right bag to carry was an ongoing problem. Her sons Jan and Derek prodded her to make her own—and doubled down on that idea by quitting their jobs in advertising and product research to help their mother, who was 65 at the time, realize her vision.”
“Sustainability and thoughtful craftsmanship are the driving forces at Lo & Sons. Once you’ve carted your essentials, the untold story of activist and Lo & Sons’ founder, Helen Lo, is an absolute must-read.”
“Helen Lo founded luxury bag company Lo & Sons after she couldn’t find any fashionable, functional travel bags. She convinced her sons, Derek and Jan, to quit their jobs in advertising and product design research, respectively, and get the startup off the ground in December 2010.”
“The brand has a striking timeless elegance, but it’s the thoughtful design that makes it a standout. You’ll never be able to take a trip without these bags again.”
“Say goodbye to the days of bags falling of the side of your suitcase and spilling out over the floor (we’ve all been there) and hello to a less painful carry on experience.”
