Slaint (pronounced Slain -t) is a luxury men's accessory brand. It was created to bridge the gap between the luxury fashion and technology industries. We have created unique, beautiful products that incorporate technology in a way that enhances the user's day to day life.
The design process is customer focused so every decision that is made is with a view to making the perfect product for the people that will use it. We are striving to find the perfect balance between aesthetic and function which seems to be lacking in the marketplace.
We are committed to ensuring our products are of the finest quality. The bags are made by skilled workers in a specialist leather factory. Each bag takes up to 30 hours to make.
Our brand's name 'Slaint' is a name inspired by the Gaelic language, the national language of Eoin’s (the founder) native Ireland. The driving idea behind Slaint is to become the world's first established luxury fashion/technology brand. We want to create beautiful products that integrate technology in a way that actually enhances the user's day to day life.
“A lot of fashion companies are dabbling in the technology side of things but none have made it part of their identity and the functions of the products are, for the most part, a gimmick. Tech start-ups are very good at coming up with new technology but ultimately fail when comes to aesthetic which is equally important. Some luxury brands that have produced bags which are sold with a phone charger inside but none have properly integrated the technology, none charge laptops and none are targeted towards men.” Eoin Cooney

Since 2009 this area has exploded and almost every fashion brand now has a range of technology accessories.
Wearable technology is the newest manifestation of this trend combining fashion and technology into a single product.
