I had heard of the brand before but I have never really got to see their bags up close so if you're new to the Kipling brand, like me, keep on reading to see what it is all about!

It all goes back to the spring of 1987 (yes, Kipling is celebrating 30 years this year!) when three designer friends from Antwerp, Belgium, discovered crinkled nylon with a stroke of luck. From then on, they never looked back and got to work on creating stylish and functional bags that are now favourites with women from 65 countries all around the world!

Why was the brand named Kipling you ask? Well, the designers compared their happy accident in discovering the crinkled nylon material with the story of Mowgli in 'The Jungle Book' which we all know has a happy ending, thus they decided to name the brand after the author of the story, Rudyard Kipling!

Now for bags and the Malta store. As already stated, the shop is located at Baystreet St. Julian's and houses an extensive selection of bags tailored for everyday needs. In fact, all Kipling bags are water repellent, and the brand plays around the philosophy that their bags are 'hands free' because of their practicality. All of the bags' features are quality tested - from the seams to the zips and each bag comes with 2 years warranty. Each bag also comes with a furry monkey keyring whicih I think adds a unique touch touch to the bags. What's more? Each monkey has it's own name and they are named after people who work at Kipling or are big fans of the brand!

Apart from backpacks and handbags, Kipling also has some luggage and school bags as well as a range of wallets and tote bags which can be folded away conveniently to fit inside larger bags. Some bags can even be expanded and they double up as hand luggage! My favourite ranges are the Tropical Bloom and the Corn Bloom.

The shop is very inviting with white and pink interiors and the staff there are very helpful too! I know where I am heading to buy my next hand luggage the next time I'm travelling!

Thank you Kipling for having me at your party and thank you for the nice gift! Looking forward to visit again soon!
