Work no longer means a messy desk in an uninspiring office. Technology allows us to work anywhere in the world, so why shouldn’t our bags? Enter Knomo. This pioneering brand is inspired by people who do things differently: the darers, the dreamers, the mavericks, and the adventure seekers.
Knomo bags are designed with freedom and versatility in mind. They offer beautiful organisation for your tech, keep you powered up and on the move, all whilst staying luxurious looking and on-trend.
Wouldn’t you just love to break the shackles of your office? Are you intrigued by Knomo’s #livefree lifestyle? Read on to discover how Knomo bags can help you achieve your dreams in style.
Knomo was founded in response to the digital revolution that hit at the start of the millennium. Established in London, 2004, the brand’s mission was to create laptop bags and briefcases that were beautiful on the outside and smart on the inside.
Fast forward to 2018 and Knomo has expanded to include trend focused backpacks, chic clutches, fashionable shoppers and street-smart messengers. The perfect example of when
luxury meets tech, Knomo bags all share the same thing: a blend of elegant aesthetics and digitally organised interiors.
Constructed from the words: ‘KNOwledge and MObility’ Knomo is intelligently made for those on the move. Since its conception, the brand has built an army of digital ‘knomads’, which includes travelling professionals, creatives and freelancers, all enamoured with the versatility, freedom and organisation Knomo bags have to offer.
But Why Are Knomo Bags So Special?
The success of the brand is mainly down to its ability to keep up with ever-changing technology and work trends. The 9 to 5 lifestyle is slowly dying out and is being replaced with mobile working, wherever you are in the world, whether that’s a café in Shoreditch or a beach in Bali, you can stay connected and work remotely. Most laptop bags, however, are uninspiring and are slow to accommodate this lifestyle. This is where Knomo shines.
Aside from being stylishly on point, Knomo bags are intuitively designed so you can live a nomadic lifestyle whilst staying organised. Technology is evolving faster than we can think, and Knomo is one of the few brands to ensure its designs keep up with the digital age.
“Understanding how people are living today really informs the products we create.” Howard Harrison, Knomo Founder
With designs made specifically for the latest tech must-haves, such as the Microsoft Surface Pro, and constructed to support an ‘eco-system’ of charging accessories, Knomo bags are essential for staying switched on and one step ahead in this fast-paced world. Check out our favourite Knomo features below:
‘Living a life organised’ is one of Knomo’s mottos, therefore impeccably organised interiors are the core of every Knomo laptop bag, handbag, organiser and backpack. A plethora of pockets and compartments look after anything from makeup and sunglasses to battery packs and laptops.
You can’t go gallivanting across the city, country or world loaded up with tech and no protection. All Knomo bags are decked out with a padded technology section to ensure laptops and tablets are carefully looked after.

A nomadic lifestyle means travelling with your valuables, which leaves items such as credit cards, IDs and passports vulnerable to wireless data theft. Many of Knomo’s designs feature RFID pockets to protect your essentials from digital pickpockets.
As modern lives blur the distinction between work and leisure, bags must do as well. Playful yet professional, casual yet chic, Knomo bags are designed to move fluidly from the office, to the bar, to the train, to the weekend… in effortless style.
From the finest leather hides to high-frequency nylon, Knomo uses premium materials for durability, style and longevity. All fabrics are lusciously lightweight and spray coated to protect against dirt and dust.
