"Seeing us in tomtoc, curious, pure and fanatical."
You Think Is Cool
We immersed ourselves in the design and wanted to solve the most challenging problem of laptop protection - the corners and bezels, which are of the highest accidental damage rate. Until we applied the curved corner protectors with flexible PE material to the four corners of the protective cover, tomtoc's first work - A13 series laptop sleeve with 360 degree protection was born. Until today, with further upgrades, it is even innovative, serving more laptops with greater protection.
In the second half of 2016, we first launched our masterpieces. Our A13 series was listed on the Best Seller list of Apple computer protective sleeves in the US during Christmas, and the BriefCase series won Amazon's Choice. In just a few months, tomtoc became the best-selling brand of laptop bags in North America.
Fun, out of the box
At the end of 2017, the gaming storage bags we designed for Nintendo Switch were born. As soon as the samples came out, we couldn't love them more ourselves. The slimmer and fitted protective cases as they are, are full of protective designs inside and out. We let go of playing with color matching and released 29 colors one after another. The ideas of Sailing Day and Summer on the Beach that are popular all over the world, came from just a moment of whimsy.
It once again surprised the market, and we were prized by industry media such as iMore, Wirecutter, NintendoSoup, Minority, and more. We came to a stage with an explosion of designing the most innovative and inspirational products. Except for the slimmest cases, we designed travel cases with better storage, controller cases for gaming consoles, and cases for better organizing with 100 game cards.
"It's boring to do what everyone is doing."
To Making It Stunning
When tomtoc became more people’s choice in digital gears’ protection, storage, and carrying, it took us a few years then to bring our backpacks to the world. With what we gained in designing neat and super protective products, we continued to apply the skills to design our Commuting Bag series. More partners joined our team. We incorporated more innovative scrutiny in aesthetics and conducted an in-depth exploration of every fabric, stitch, seam, and zipper - this contributed to an excellent and beautiful carrying experience.
"Every time I open tomtoc bag, I’m surprised, pleasantly." We enjoy making a surprise.
In 2019, the tomtoc iPad covers came to market and quickly made a name in Amazon. The original-designed dual-mode screen - vertical screen mode and horizontal screen mode made them once become tomtoc's most favored products.
In late 2020, we started to design and work for women’s bag lines. We believe that function and beauty shall co-exist even better. The philosophy of the newly joined designer team for women's bag is simple - There are many products designed for ladies, yet not many people really understand them. And we want to be one that makes the tailored and best for them.
