Design philosophy


We design for an active urban lifestyle

Functionality and practicality is of the essence in our designs.

We design for a kinder world

We want people to get out the door and connect with other and spread kindness. Bags are essential for getting out. And the more comfortable they are, the more we are able to set ourselves free and engage with others.

We design for a kinder earth

We are working towards making a 100% sustainable bag. And we have pledged that each collection is more sustainable than the last. Read more about sustainability here.

We design for the design and fashion conscious user

Just because your bag is water-resistant, multifunctional and durable doesn’t mean that you need to look like your are going hiking. (Not that there is anything wrong with hiking bags <3).

We design for diversity

That is why we collaborate with new designers for every collection and invite them to interpret what Kintobe means to them. Meet the designer of the Sidewalk Collection here.
