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 Montreal in 2014 by Charles and Simon. The two engineers became friends in university and won several major awards together at the world's largest engineering student competition for designing, manufacturing and driving a Formula SAE racecar. Charles then pursued a career in aeronautics and management, while Simon went into aerospace engineering.
Their long friendship and shared inherent need to create led them to come together again. In response to the lack of well-crafted luggage and travel accessories available at the time, they founded Charles Simon with the ambition to disrupt the industry with their innovative vision of high quality, design-driven luggage and accessories .
