Sydney, AUSTRALIA – August 2019 – Australian luxe tech accessory brand CODE REPUBLIC, has today announced it is now a Global Certified Partner in the 'Designed for Surface' program. This certification means that CODE REPUBLIC accessories have passed stringent reliability, quality, functionality and regulatory compliance testing, with the ‘Designed for Surface’ badge enabling its products to now be sold worldwide as a Microsoft 3rd party accessories partner.

Designed to address the needs of today’s woman, CODE REPUBLIC integrates practicality with luxurious design, with today’s news taking the Australian-owned and designed product range to the world. Stylish yet functional, the thoughtfully designed collection of laptop bags and accessories, stand for women not having to make the trade-off between beauty and functionality, strength and versatility.

Having worked in the technology industry for years, CODE REPUBLIC Australian founder, Anthea Rowan, spent her days travelling between meetings, casual events and cities – always with her laptop and accessories in tow. Disappointed that brands didn’t have options that matched the needs nor power ensembles of the modern-day woman. With her earlier background in design and a solid experience in the consumer technology market, Rowan decided to take the plunge and create her own brand to help professional women feel empowered.

“At CODE REPUBLIC, we set out to create a range of sleek, strong and smart laptop bags, to address the needs of today’s busy woman, from the boardroom, to the plane, to the bar and everything in between. We have worked hard to create a range that is stylish, functional, designed to provide convenience, organisation, beauty and strength to carry everything to get you through the day and into the night”, said Anthea Rowan, CODE REPUBLIC Founder.

“With Microsoft Surface revenue growing year on year, we are thrilled that our Aussie start-up is now a global Microsoft Certified Partner and that our bags will proudly carry the Microsoft Designed for Surface badge.

It’s definitely an honour for CODE REPUBLIC as we continue to create luxe tech accessories to ensure every type of woman, everywhere in the world, no longer has to compromise on style”, she added 


Driven by innovation and meticulous design, CODE REPUBLIC is passionate about pushing fashion boundaries. Designed specifically to address the needs of today’s business woman, who needs to transition from desk to dinner with effortless style, the collection integrates daily practicalities with a directional sense of style, luxe finishes and classic pieces across the collection.
