Five Favorite Etsy Stores- Travel Gear

by - Sunday, September 11, 2016

I want to keep highlighting amazing makers in the US, and I feel like my Etsy links can get caught in the more mainstream shuffle. So starting a series to focus on the greatest stuff we have found. 

off chutes recycled luggage tag
Off Chutes- This is one of my favorite Etsy stores of all time- she takes used material from parachutes (talk about a life of adventure) and turns them into wallets, passport covers, and luggage tags. So different from the aesthetic of most recycled materials, these are bright, dynamic, and fun. Plus, they are easy to spot when you pick up your luggage, which is a little but lovely thing. This store would be great for gifts as well!
Oliday backpack
from Oliday

Oliday- I had an Oliday camera bag that lasted me for years, so I can really vouch for this store. Based out of Los Angeles, these bags have clean aesthetics that would work for lots of styles (and both genders). I love this camera backpack, even though I generally prefer a side bag. If you are traveling with some camera gear, this may be the way to go.

Exsect cord organizers made of leather from etsy
from Exsect
Exsect- This store has a variety of items, but I am all about their cord organizers. I bought these for The Boy last Christmas, and they are genuinely helpful for keeping things clean and together in your travel bag. We also love these for keeping cords under control when the three of us are packed into two seats.
from Designspirit USA
Designspirit USA- I am not a pet owner, but I do want to point to these pet travel bags from Designspirit USA, also based out of Los Angeles. The bags look thoughtfully-made, are designed and sewn in the US, and they even give some of their proceeds to animal rescue organizations.

travel first aid kits
from Shoppe by Lola
Shoppe by Lola- This Minnesota shop mostly sells super cute fabric wallets, but I love their little first aid kits for traveling. Such a smart thing to have in your travel bag.
