Kolo was founded in 1998, as a premium brand of paper products (photo albums and notebooks), bags and eyewear. We have grown to fame due to our minimal design, function, sophisticated color palette and quality. In the past two decades, Kolo has sold millions of premium notebooks, albums and other products and built a strong and loyal following with creative professionals throughout the world from Tokyo to Berlin to New York, helping people to capture and share life’s most important moments.

At Kolo, we have a strong passion for photography and the presentation of photography via books. Big books or small, the power of prints and the books that hold them is what consumes us.

Photographers, artists and other creative professionals were the first to discover Kolo. Around the world, they use Kolo archival books as simple tools….tools that allow their photos and art to be captured and shared. The power of print. Alive and well in a digital era!

Our bags and travel pouches serve as a testament to our commitment to good, environmental stewardship, a core value of ours at Kolo. Made from 100% organic cotton canvas in a range of beautifully curated colors, these rucksacks, duffles, totes, and other travel bags are designed to look better as they age while helping you travel effortlessly. 

The addition of eyewear to the Kolo brand adds yet another level of sophistication to the minimalist design yet exceptional quality that we aim to put forth. Designed in our Headquarters home of Boston, Massachusetts and manufactured by hand in Italy, the classic silhouette styles provide clean lines and soft curves for functionality and style. 

Behind every life, there is a great story, and everyday we are continuing to build ours. What’s your story?
