Since our inception in 2013, Songmont has established itself as a pioneering brand in the world of experiential bag design.
At Songmont, we draw inspiration from the rich legacy of the Orient, imbuing each of our products with the timeless wisdom and exquisite aesthetics of this cultural tradition.
Our meticulous attention to detail ensures that every bag is crafted to harmonize seamlessly with its surroundings and reflect the innate beauty of the natural world.
We understand our responsibility to preserve natural resources and minimize our ecological impact while creating leather goods that endure the test of time. These core values lie at the heart of our brand identity, define our purpose, and propel us forward.
Our founder, Song, is a visionary in the field of user-centered design, with over 15 years of experience. Her innate empathy and intuition have enabled her to develop a deep understanding of customer goals and demands, and reflect in every aspect of our brand.
With our global headquarters located in Beijing and additional branches in Guangdong, Shanxi, New York, and Los Angeles, Songmont is dedicated to delivering excellence and sharing our brand's philosophy with the world.
In 2013, Song returned to work after welcoming her first child into the world. As a working mother who needed to bring her laptop to work every day, she scoured the market for a bag that would meet her needs but was left disappointed by the options available.
Recognizing a gap in the market, Song set out to design practical yet stylish bags that would cater to the needs of modern women. With the unwavering support and guidance of her mother, the venerable Madam Fu, whose decades of experience in crafting proved invaluable, Songmont's first bag was born. This formative experience ignited Song's passion for designing products that prioritize the user experience, a core tenet that continues to guide our brand ethos to this day.
As our brand grew, Madam Fu took on a new role, leading a team of talented women, affectionately referred to as the "grannies", who share her dedication and passion for the craft. These women, even after retirement, continue to enrich their spare time by lending their expertise and skills to our creative process, imbuing each bag with a unique sense of warmth and personal touch.
Throughout our nearly decade-long journey, Songmont has curated a team of talented and creative young designers, as well as a team of experienced and skilled craftswomen who bring traditional handicrafts to the forefront of our designs.
We combine modern fashion trends with the unique aesthetics and femininity of Oriental culture, to create premium leather goods that embody the essence of Songmont.
While our team has diversified and our business has expanded to international markets, our core values remain unchanged. The Grannies Team continues to serve as our spiritual backbone, upholding our commitment to excellence and representing our heritage and traditions.
And as we expand our business overseas, in addition to maintaining our high standards, we also strive to make our well-designed and high-quality bags accessible to everyone–regardless of their location or budget. This dedication to inclusivity has helped us build a loyal customer base both domestically and internationally, who appreciate our focus on user experience and sustainability.
Throughout all of our growth and development, our team culture and studio environment remain welcoming and aesthetically pleasing, reflecting our dedication to creating high-end products and a harmonious lifestyle.
Brand & Business Values
At Songmont, we take great pride in the quality of our materials. Our leather goods are made from premium European leather, sourced from trusted suppliers. We have a transparent supply chain that allows our customers to trace the source of the materials used in their bags.
In selecting materials and production processes, we prioritize sustainable development and refuse to sacrifice environmental protection for cost or convenience.
As a company, we are deeply committed to supporting women, particularly during the beautiful yet challenging journey of motherhood. We understand that functional and stylish work bags can make life easier and more enjoyable for women, and we take pride in offering such products.
Our customers are strong, independent, and confident women of the modern age, and we are dedicated to designing products that reflect their spirit and empower them to pursue their passions and dreams.
Our company is dedicated to sustainability and reducing our environmental impact. We take great care to minimize our environmental impact and embrace the concept of slow fashion.
Songmont’s commitment to the environment extends beyond just the products themselves. We use recycled pulp for our packaging boxes and print with biodegradable soybean ink. We have also introduced linen into our dust bags as a more eco-friendly alternative.
Additionally, we are constantly exploring new materials to replace plastic components in our production and packaging, all in an effort to reduce our environmental footprint.
Environmental protection is at the heart of our design philosophy, and we will continue to innovate and evolve with sustainability in mind.
We believe that cultural heritage is an essential part of who we are, and we strive to rebuild respect and admiration for these traditions among younger generations and international customers alike.
We are deeply inspired by the rich and vibrant traditions of Oriental culture, and we strive to incorporate these elements into our designs. From traditional embroidery and Chinese Zodiac symbols to the beloved wonton culture, our products are infused with the unique beauty of the East.
For us, the Oriental aesthetics are more than just a source of design inspiration. We are deeply committed to preserving disappearing traditional crafts by promoting them to the Millennial market and training the next generation of craftsmen from developing villages. Our Grannies Team plays a critical role in this mission, showcasing their incredible talents and contributing to the cultural legacy that we hope to pass down for generations to come.
