TORONTO - Nov. 6, 2018 - PRLog -- monte & coe started with the question, "Why can't I find a weekender bag that's different?" Since then, the Toronto-based brand has been focused on creating the best luggage and accessories possible with a modern twist to the traditional looking products we see in the everyday market. Their artistic designs feature full-grain Italian leathers contrasted by the softer feel of Italian wool. It started with the perfect weekender bag suitable for any vacation, business trip, or daily gym trip. Since then their product shelf has expanded to 21 units and counting, ranging from $30-$695.

Their signature Italian wool is 100% sustainable, renewable and biodegradable and is far more likely to last compared to canvas products that can rip and puncture over time. Co-Founder Andrew Coelho says, "it's the perfect fibre as it gives us the opportunity to incorporate an eco-friendly material into our collection and coincidentally provides everything we need in terms of design, aesthetic, and durability."

It's not just their design and choice of raw materials that are getting the attention of many, but at the forefront of their growing popularity is there commitment to support local family run business by staying made in Canada. All monte & coe's suppliers are small family-run shops, from their manufacturing partners in Toronto, all the way to their wool and hardware suppliers in Italy. Every decision made at monte & coe is based on social responsibility, from the raw materials they source, to the boxes they use to ship their products in, which are 100% recycled.

Over the past few years, this innovative entry to luxury brand has caught the attention of many retailers in both Canada and the USA. They have worked with the likes of Holt Renfrew and many other independent retailers and starting this Holiday Season can be found in select Hudson's Bay locations, including their online shop.

About the Founders:
