Latest rtherapy Kipling product videos in the can!

We've kept busy over the holidays and spent the days between Christmas and New Year shooting some more Kipling bag video clips. To be honest we needed something to keep us away from the leftovers and mince pies!

We've always had good feed back on the videos we embed on our rtherapy site and at the last count we had racked up product videos for over 140 different Kipling bags, purses and luggage. Hopefully they give you a  better indication of how the Kipling bag looks rather than the usual photos you find on most sites. Where possible we also try and give a little insight into the bag or luggage. For example, if a particular pocket is large enough to hold a book, bottle of water or just a small purse.

Our latest batch of video clips are featuring some of our favourite Kipling backpacks. If you're a Kipling bag fan you will know that the label started off with backpacks in the mid 80's and then gradually expanded into the range of handbags, purses, luggage and accessories that are on offer now.

For all our videos you can visit our YouTube channel: rtherapy1972. But below you'll find a couple  we've picked from the latest shoot.

First up is the Kipling Clas Challenger in chevron stripe. This is a great backpack and the perfect size for a day down the beach or for taking to the gym or work.

We also featured the Kipling Clas Seoul in pink orchid. This is a slightly larger backpack than the Clas Challenger, coming with a  padded pocket to slot your laptop or tablet computer into. Overall and excellent Kipling backpack for college or work

All these bags and more can be found at our website or if you want to speak to us in person you can call the shop on +44 (0)1637 876698

Kipling bags best sellers 2012

Kipling Christmas best sellers 2012

Well 2012 is over and what a year! For us here at rtherapy we were flat out right up until the New Years Eve parties got underway.

Now the dust has settled and the hangovers cleared we have had time to look back over at what was hot in 2012...

Best selling Kipling handbag 2012

Well as you would expect The Kipling Fairfax, Defea and New Raisin were all bestsellers during 2012. According to our Kipling sources the Fairfax is the best selling Kipling bag of all time... though what surprised us in 2012 is how sort after the Kipling Cammie was.  This  versatile shoulder bag has loads of room with 3 main compartments and really is a great alternative to the Fairfax or Defea as your go to Kipling bag

Best selling Kipling purses and Wallets

Unlike the handbags there were no real surprises here. The usual suspects filled the order books with the New Money being the most popular purse, while for those of you wanting something slightly larger the Kipling Brownie proved a popular option.


Kipling luggage

It seemed a fair few customers were heading off on their holidays this year and cabin sized luggage was all the rage. The Kipling Yubin50 was streets ahead of the competition and with a volume of 25L and only weighing 2.2kg it certainly offered everything you need in a compact piece carry on wheeled luggage.

So it just leaves us to wish everyone a very happy and healthy 2013
