What does LOJEL mean?

LOJEL is an acronym for Let Our Journeys Enrich Life. We believe in the search for meaningful experiences through travel and chose a name that embodied that idea. Visit our About page to learn more about Lojel.

When was LOJEL started?

Our journey began in Japan in 1989. Driven by an everyday explorer’s mindset, we formed a global collective of world travelers, manufacturers and designers to create the best luggage and bags possible. Today, LOJEL’s offices span the globe—headquartered in the metropolitan hub of Hong Kong, with a creative design team in Vancouver, Canada—plus a team of expert product designers in Japan. Our multinational perspective and love for the journey has set us apart since day one. For the past three decades, we have exclusively partnered with an ethical manufacturer whose factories are widely accredited and certified non-toxic. LOJEL is now sold in over 15 countries across five continents.

Where are LOJEL products manufactured?

We are committed to working with the best the world has to offer, which is why 30 years ago we chose to partner with a highly-certified manufacturer. Today, the same partner’s factories in China and Indonesia still diligently maintain ethical standards and are pioneers of high-quality production and manufacturing processes. Read more at our About page.

How socially responsible is LOJEL with their manufacturing?

As both manufacturers and travelers, we believe in taking responsibility for the safety of our customers and being cognizant of our impact on the world we love to travel. Both of the factories we work with are EU REACH compliant, and we seek to source materials from partners that value the same standards in manufacturing.
