Hellolulu was conceived in 2005 by two friends John & Ronny, carrying the motto “Carry Happiness”. Hellolulu identified originality, simplicity and practicality as its core elements, with products that provide a great user experience. This is what drew us to the brand and we’re excited to launch the bag range on Milligram.
Stylish and durable, Hellolulu bags are highly functional and made of sturdy materials, which makes the day-to-day task of organising and carrying your necessities a pleasure. The range includes backpacks, ruckpacks, tote bags and Boston bags. With it’s bright & cheerful palate of colours and practical designs, there is a Hellolulu bag to suit everyone!
We chat with Ronny and John to find out a bit more about the brand and where their inspiration comes from.
