A story about two ambitious engineers
”Respect for our Canadian origins and craftsmanship as well as our journey as engineers have profoundly shaped the soul of the brand.”
Charles Simon was founded in 2014 in Montreal by Charles and Simon. Friends at university, Charles and Simon won several major awards together at the largest engineering student competition in the world, for designing, manufacturing and driving a Formula SAE racecar. Charles then pursued a career in aeronautics and management, Simon in aerospace engineering.
Their long friendship and instinctive need to create led them to come together again. As a response to the lack of well-crafted, design-led luggage and travel accessories on offer at the time and with the ambition to disrupt the industry with their new vision, they formed Charles Simon.
With an uncompromising devotion to design, quality and aesthetics, by combining the precision of aeronautical engineering and artisanal savoir-faire, we made every Charles Simon pieces exclusive, bold yet timeless and functional.
