Charles Simon designs and hand crafts bagages d’exception. With an uncompromising devotion to design, Charles Simon elevates luggage to art objects designed to travel. Thanks to a distinctive approach to manufacturing - combining Canadian wood, French leather, expert craftsmanship and aeronautic engineering - we offer authentic and durable travel pieces of exceptionally high quality.
Charles Simon was formed in 2014 in Montreal by Charles G Tremblay and Simon Maltais. Friends at the university, Charles and Simon together won several major awards at the largest engineering student competition in the world, for designing, manufacturing and driving a Formula SAE car. Charles then pursued a career in aeronautics and management, Simon in aerospace engineering.
Their long friendship and an instinctive need to create led them to come together again to form Charles Simon. Respect for their Canadian origins and their career as engineers have deeply shaped the soul of the brand.
Our ambition is to reinvent how people travel. We are bold and looking to push the boundaries of the luxury luggage. We are perfectionist and meticulous in our craftsmanship and design.
In the perfect balance between beauty and function. Each individual deserves beautiful, meaningful and equally singular travel pieces that reflect his/her personality.
Excellence and outstanding quality, without compromise. Charles Simon is the result of years of research and development. We have the experience along with a great attention to detail.
Elegant, discreet yet bold and ergonomic luggage and travel accessories, handcrafted with unparalleled care and precision in Canada.
