About Us - Casauri Story

Welcome to Casauri

Our core mission


Bringing joy back to travel since 1999





Organizing your travel essentials to maximize your travel joy.

Simplifying and facilitating your travels - from the office, to the airport, or to the beach - at work, at play, or both - #CarryJoy

Where we come from and where we go

Casauri has been creating high quality carrying cases since1999 in New York, New Jersey, and Florida, USA. We started out designing stylish laptop cases that made design history by becoming the first laptop case sold at the MoMA Design Store (Museum of Modern Art) in New York and Tokyo. Casauri customers are individuals who value bold style and well-thought out design.

Casauri bags travel the world – from Iceland to Australia, from Hong Kong to Jamaica - and everywhere in between – #CarryCasauri!

What we believe

Everything we carry should be a lot of fun, a little funky, and 100% functional.

So much so that we designed the Department of Homeland Security TSA approved checkpoint-friendly laptop bag protocol adopted at airports nationwide!

When you carry Casauri, your productivity increases.

Productivity increases happiness - Happiness increases productivity.

Organization increases efficiency - Efficiency increases confidence.

Confidence emboldens self-expression - And we all live happily ever after….

What’s in a name

Casauri came from the “ca-” in the French “caméléon” and the “-sauri” from the reptile family Sauria. The ball logo - beach ball or coiled tail of the chameleon – you choose.

Casauri Founders

Two enterprising sisters, Emily McHugh and Helena McHugh, combined their respective expertise to start Casauri. Emily is also the author of The Little Girl’s Guide to Entrepreneurship – What I Know Now That I Sure Wish I Knew Then that includes insights from the Casauri entrepreneurial journey.
