Our Story

Q&A

Why Néit Luggage?

Over half of the world’s population live in cities and at Néit we are counted amongst them. We have spent a good proportion of our lives living in small city apartments that we try to keep as uncluttered as possible. However, as you know, that’s easier said than done.

We consider ourselves to be global citizens who travel regularly. Upon arriving home from one particular adventure in South-East Asia, we realised how frustrating it was that our luggage took up so much of our precious and otherwise useable space in our apartments. The more we thought about it, the more we started to recognise that it wasn’t just luggage that hasn’t been adapted to modern day city-living.The Neit concept was born!

Is Luggage Our Only Product?

Initially, we started small, with our slim and stylish iPhone CardCase. The Neit phone case reduces pocket bulk, protects your phone and enables you carry up to 2 important cards (e.g. contactless payment). The Neit phone case provided us with our early experience of sourcing, manufacturing, and logistics.

What’s Our Mission?

We quickly migrated our sourcing, manufacturing and logistics experience to focus on the luggage problem.

Luggage has seen little radical development in many years. We travel more regularly than ever before, yet our luggage and travel experience has remained largely unchanged. So, we set out to design a hard-shelled case that would complement our modern urban lifestyles from the moment we pull the case out of our closet all the way to putting it back in at the end of the trip; a head-turning companion while on the road and at our destination. Néit Luggage will add value to all aspects of your travel experience, before, during and after; your modern-day travel companion!

What Is In The Name, NÉIT?

Néit is the Celtic God of War, he was synonymous in ancient Celtic culture with fighting and protection. We felt the name resonated with what we are trying to achieve: Protection without compromising the neatness and functionality of the product.
