WE ARE LUX & NYX, and we create couture bags with function. We are home to the ZOE, World's Most Luxurious Backpack with Function. Period. Lux & Nyx (pronounced 'Lucks and Nix') is greek, meaning “Light and Night”, it’s a representation of a transitional period, whether it’s a physical change in time, or an analogy for life changes.
With this campaign, we are launching our company, and our goal is build a brand to support the the woman on the rise, to create products for those that not only demand style, they also demand functionality to support their daily needs. We believe in quality and attention to detail that comes with luxury high end brands. We also make our goods with eco considerate material, that are quality and durable.
At our core, we also believe luxury is not exclusive of being eco or making a social impact it’s a conversation point worth exploring. Our first project is with Love to Langa, a 501(c) non-for-profit, to build a School in Langa Township, South Africa. See #GoodsWithHeart

We incorporate consideration of eco-concious materials during our production. We specialize in products created with Freedom Fiber™ leather. It is a functional material developed with the latest technology that is durable, water resistant and easy to maintain. It is mainly made of fine microfiber bundles that gives the end product a similar amino structure as genuine leather without using leather, but it moves and breathes akin to real leather. The material is water resistant and easy to clean, and is able to maintain its look over a longer period of time than chemically treated leather, without the hassle of maintenance over time.

We hand select projects that will provide educational benefit to our future generations. Our current project is with Love to Langa, 501(c) non for profit, to build a school in Langa Township, South Africa. We are committing 10% of our profit from the kickstarter to this cause.
Rest assure, the founder dedicates 100% of every dollar of the proceeds supports educational efforts in South Africa, cutting out any corporate overhead.

How It All Started
Story Behind The Brand
From the Founder, Lisa:
I quit my corporate job as a Finance Director to launch this company, Lux & Nyx. As a successful female, I had a choice of continuing my career path or pursuing a purpose. I wanted to create a company that makes products for the modern woman on the rise to inspire them to be more productive and do more with their time. Because I was that female, I constantly felt like I didn't have enough time on my hands and I had to carry my life in all these different bags, when really I needed to simply and use a quality functional bag that would help take me through the week with ease.
While females are under represented in management positions, there is 50% growth of female CEOs in the fortune 500 list compared to last year, and there are many more where that is coming from, just bubbling below the surface in all levels of business and professions. As a company, we want to embrace that growth, we want to create products that support that image of success, hence we want to create a couture line of products that are functional to make sure the female looks her best, while being her best. To work around the growing female population that has higher taste in products. We do this through high quality, artisan craftsmanship, and materials that are Eco friendly. We also want our customer to feel good about carrying our products, so not only do we make sure the materials are eco, we also support education as a sub mission, we believe education will make the world a better place.
So here we are, this company, our products, our community #FemaleTriumph. It’s testament to the things we can overcome with will power. As a further dedication to the bravery that is #FemaleTriumph. Our Inspired Couture line products are named after historical female figures, a combination of their first name and birth year, indicating presence of female bravery throughout history. This line will be featured on our website at www.luxandnyx.com. We currently have the Amelia 1897 bag featured on this Kickstarter.
Here's to #FemaleTriumph.
We want to continue growing our #FemaleTriumph community. Inspiring females are the world to follow their passion. We want to make bring more good into this world, it all begins here. We would love your help by introducing our campaign to your own community and spreading the word across your social networks.
