Launching Lo & Sons

March 24, 2022

A decade ago, Helen Lo along with her two sons created a travel bag that would travel light without compromising functionality and style.  Today, Lo & Sons offers a thoughtfully crafted selection of totes and bags for women and men. Their mission to inspire and empower people to go places while striving to leave a positive impact is revealed in the form and function of their bags.  You can learn more about their sustainability priorities here.

The Lo & Sons company is part of a growing movement that believes businesses can actually lead the way in reversing environmental damage and creating innovative solutions. They have designed two eco-friendly collections aligned with their efforts to leave a positive impact.

Recycled Poly Collection

Recycled poly is a technical fabric made from recycled plastic bottles that otherwise end up in landfills and waterways.  Lo & Sons uses a thicker recycled poly which is water-resistant and super strong. Three billion recycled plastic bottles save over half a million barrels of oil and eliminates 400,000 tons of greenhouse gas emissions.

Organic Canvas Collection

The Organic Canvas Collection is made from limited-supply cotton, grown without pesticides or chemicals. This farming method reduces environmental harm by preventing eutrophication, a buildup of nitrogen in bodies of water that threatens fish and plant life. 

As well, Lo & Sons is always seeking ways to improve the lifecycle of their products. Being in partnership with The Renewal Workshop and offering a collection of Renewed products is one of the ways they achieve that goal.  We are excited to welcome our founding luxury accessories brand, Lo & Sons, to the family and proud to support them in the journey toward Circular.
