Emerging in 2003 during a period of societal turbulence and guided by the vision of our founder, Simon King. The brand began with the idea of repurposing discarded airplane seatbelts into functional bag straps, arming people with bags of purpose and personality; leading to the launch of our iconic Runway Model Messenger bag.
This attitude towards re-imagination and a shifting of perspective has stayed true to this day. With ATKM - formerly 'All the King’s Men', drawing upon the adage from the classic nursery rhyme Humpty Dumpty, to affirm that we can find a better way forward. We are driven by the desire to create products that help you move through the world with ease.
