Travel is what you make of it. For some, it’s an escape from everyday life. But for others, it’s a chance to grow and learn. To explore places near and far with wonder and curiosity, with gratitude and graciousness. To greet the world with open eyes and arms, and an open mind and heart. We founded Monos with these travellers in mind, because we are these travellers too.
Mindfulness – being fully immersed in the here and now – is at the heart of our philosophy on travelling and living well. We believe that when we are present in the moment and mindful in our travels – when we are passionate wanderers – the deeper beauty of the world reveals itself.
Less is more
We value simplicity, and we believe that a well-designed, premium suitcase doesn’t need to be loud and flashy – it simply speaks for itself. In today’s throwaway society of passing trends and mass consumption, we design our pieces to be timeless classics, with an understated aesthetic that stands the test of time.
Made to last
We believe in having fewer but better things. That’s why we decided from the outset that every single part we use matters, and every little detail counts. We sourced the highest quality parts and materials from around the world, and if we couldn’t find a component that met our standards, we worked with industry experts to make it ourselves.
We want to make premium quality travel goods accessible to everyone. High-end luxury luggage is typically priced well out of reach of the average person, ranging from $700 to over $1,000 USD for a carry-on. We use the same materials and factories as these top brands, but because we sell directly to you, we can offer our luggage for a fraction of the price.
People before profits
We value the connections we make with people everywhere – in our travels, collaborations, factory partnerships, and customer service. We believe that genuine human connection and understanding are the keys to travelling well, doing good business, and living a good life.
