Starting with simple, elegant and functional carry-on, the brand has since grown to include checked luggage and in August 2019 opened their first retail space in Melbourne’s Emporium Shopping Centre. The company is on track to achieve $5 million of revenue in its first year of operations. A serial entrepreneur, Athan is also the founder of Australia’s largest online specialty coffee retailer, Three Thousand Thieves.
