Brand Story

We are an Asian-American owned family business that’s on a mission to inspire and empower people to go places, while leaving a positive impact.

Where Function Meets Style

High quality and thoughtfully designed travel products that not only perform well, but also look great.

Thoughtful Design

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 believe in looking stylish. And we 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.

  • “The family-run company cofounded by Helen's sons, Jan and Derek, continues to manufacture travel accessories with thoughtful, human-centered design in mind.”=”
  • “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.”
  • “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.”
  • “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.”
  • “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.”
  • “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.”
