Lottery: Extraordinary Artistic Bags from LOQI

Where does the name LOQI come from? What does it mean?
Our brand name combines Latin and Chinese to symbolize our close ties between our global partners the East and West. It is a combination of Loci, which is Latin for location and Qi, which is Chinese for air and life energy.
How would you describe the DNA of your bags?
I love the simplicity of the LOQI products: it’s the core of the business. The cultural world is an endless source of possibilities and collaborations for us as a brand. It sparks our imagination and curiosity. We want to inspire the LOQI community to spread the word for art and foster culture in their lives.

On your website you write: The cultural world is an endless source of possibilities and collaborations for us as a brand. It sparks our imagination and curiosity. What can we expect from LOQI in the future? What are your plans?
Important for our collaborations is that all future collections will be recycled and we are developing new sustainable materials like Tyvek.
