Bring back “real” photography!
That was our motto when we established miggo in 2014.
We discovered (we know it wasn’t exactly a cure for cancer, but still…) that more and more photography enthusiasts were leaving their camera at home and favoring candid shots with their smartphones. That wasn’t much of a surprise, because smartphones go with us everywhere and it’s not much fun schlepping your camera around like a tourist… and that was the trigger that inspired miggo. We established the company to provide all photography enthusiasts with comfortable, smart and simple carrying solutions for their “real” cameras.
A bit of history?
miggo was established by a group of designers who worked together at Kata Bags and Manfrotto. Kata is known for its countless camera and video bags, which were developed in-house and marketed worldwide. It’s not surprising that to this day Kata bags are still considered some of the world’s best camera bags around.
After the company was merged with the headquarters in Italy, we founded miggo. We had years of combined experience in developing award-winning camera cases and bags, as well as a passion to bring to market new concepts for carrying cameras. In 2014, miggo successfully launched its first round of products on Kickstarter – the strap&wrap and grip&wrap series – comfortable camera straps which morph into protective carriers. The Kickstarter campaign was successful beyond our wildest dreams – raising over 400% of the original funding goal and receiving great responses from users and professional magazines and websites alike.
The patented miggo products are currently marketed in over 30 countries around the world. Today the company is busy developing a number of new products, for photographers and people who like outdoor activities.
