Milo Ray is a German brand focusing on products handcrafted to perfection. The three friends Felix, Max and Anh Tuan met in the middle of Frankfurt City at a Startup Weekend. 54 hours of hard work later they knew that this team would forge something incredible. To open their minds and with a sense of adventurism they went on a journey throughout south-east Asia to take a break from their German home and work life. Somewhere in the middle of Thailand they met “Milo” – a monk teaching about the power of nature. He encouraged them to pursue their dreams, to never give up. Upon returning to Germany, the three friends set out to honor the monk’s words and make their vision a reality – starting with designing and crafting jewelry deeply rooted in spirituality and energy healing. As so many startups do – the friends launched with humble beginnings full of ups and downs in a small garage near Heidelberg. After some time, they met “Raymond” a lecturer and leather expert. He taught them about crafting methods and everything else there is to know about leather. Upon that the three friends started to broaden their vision and added hand-braided leather bracelets to their collection, combining spirituality and a rustic feel of nature. Despite their success and growth of the company, Milo Ray continues to handcraft each piece – never relying on machinery or mass production. It didn’t take the friends too long to combine their new love of leather goods with their sense of adventurism – the leather bag collection was born, applying traditional crafting methods to build products to last a lifetime.
The three friends Felix, Max and Anh Tuan were all born in different surroundings of Germany. Despite the small, rural setting of their childhood, they became fascinated by style, the arts and spirituality. It was a glimpse of destiny that they met in a busy city like Frankfurt and became partners, friends immediately. Through their endeavors in the fashion industry they were able to define their distinct and personal aesthetic. But it was not until they met the monk that they truly gained the vision which inspired the first piece of Milo Ray.
Each design is assembled by human hands and every carefully selected precious and semi-precious stone is chosen to stimulate spiritual healing powers, every inch of leather is chosen to impersonate the feel of nature, to get that rustic touch. All finished items are purified with a cleansing sage.
The brand emphasizes creativity, individuality and spirituality in all its designs. Milo Ray is creating one-of-a-kind designs handcrafted to perfection.
