Bring back “real” photography!
That was our motto when we established miggo in 2014.
A bit of history?
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.
miggo headquarters are based in the peaceful village of Abu-Gosh, a few minutes’ drive from Jerusalem.
