Helen Lo

Necessity Is The Mother Of Invention

When Helen Lo had back issues and needed the perfect bag that kept up with her frequent travels, she set out to find it. Unfortunately, the options were either too heavy, too frumpy, too tech-y, overpriced, overly designed, or pocketless black holes.

Jan and Derek as boys

A Mother And Her Two Sons

After watching their mother abandon yet another bag, her sons suggested she invent one herself. But as a woman in her mid-60s, she wondered how she would ever get from Point A to Point B. So eventually devoted sons Jan and Derek ditched their respective day jobs in advertising and product design research (and nightly gigs as DJ’s) to help make Helen’s dream a reality.

Lo & Sons bags

Travel Light & Look Smart

Lo & Sons bags are built to travel light without compromising functionality and style. Every single high-quality feature was designed to meet the needs of frequent travelers, movers and shakers. Each bag is thoughtfully designed with features like meticulously placed pockets, compartments for tech essentials, and elements for smooth travels like an adjustable sleeve for sliding over suitcase handles. Translation: less fumbling, more globetrotting.

In Memory of Our Father

In December 2016, we lost our father. We miss him everyday. He was the chairman of our board of directors, our biggest supporter and fan, and he was instrumental in the launch of Lo & Sons.
