It was only three years ago when monte & coe hit the scene, launching their Toronto-made products to the tune of a successful Indiegogo campaign where they reached 252% of their initial goal.
Since then, the Toronto-based brand has been focused on creating the best luggage and accessories possible, taking a modern approach to the traditional products we see in the everyday market. Their artistic designs feature full-grain Italian leathers contrasted by the softer feel of Italian wools. It all started with the perfect weekender bag suitable for any vacation, business trip, or daily gym trip. Their collection had since expanded to 21 units and counting, ranging from $35-$695.
monte & coe has caught the eye of retailers like Holt Renfrew and Hudson’s Bay, among the many other independent retailers that carry them in Canada and the USA. Their focus on reviving Toronto’s reputation for quality manufacturing and craftsmanship is at the forefront of their growing popularity.
I recently caught up with Co-Founder Andrew Coelho and he had this to say about the brand’s direction:
“For me, it’s about bringing true value with luxury raw materials and high-quality craftsmanship and adding personality through design elements like vibrant stripes and interiors. It’s also super important that we continue to support local family run businesses and show people that we are in fact a world class city with world class manufacturing. I’m truly passionate about showing the world that made in Canada means something again, and if there’s one thing I am most proud of, it is that we are made right here in our own backyard.”
