Carry-On Closet Luggage – 20″
Solgaard has built a sleek suitcase to help you stay organized on-the-go with a removable, built-in shelving system that acts as compression cubes when you pack up the suitcase. It’s a system so sleek, TIME Magazine called it the best Travel Invention of 2018.
The removable, built-in shelving system has six shelves, plus a compression strap for maximum storage. No two trips are alike. Maybe you’ve got some larger items or gifts to pack–designed to suit any journey, with or without the shelves.
Conveniently charge your phone or any other USB device without having to tumble through your belongings.
Solarbank: Lightweight Solar-Powered USB Power Bank
Charge your phone with Solgaard’s lightweight solarbank, and keep it powered up easily by sunlight. The Solarbank is compatible with Solgaard’s Lifepack and luggage.
Holding up to five full charges, never experience a dead phone again when you need it most, whether you’re traveling, running between meetings, or at the airport with no accessible outlets.
Charge your solarbank boombox using the USB-C cord, or let it bask in some sunlight to top it up using its solar panels.
To charge from empty via solar only, will take 20+ hours of strong sunlight. We suggest to charge via the wall outlet, and let the sun top up the Solarbank as you use it.
Anchal’s goal is to create sustainable, income-generating textile initiatives run by local leadership that create long-term change for exploited and marginalized women.
Every purchase of an Anchal product helps provide an artisan with a full-time job, health care benefits, design training and educational workshops.
Certified organic cotton is ethically sourced, from seed to stitch to consumer. And reusable face masks reduce the unnecessary disposal of one time use masks.
Solgaard’s goal is to be the leader in sustainable luxury goods. They enhance life on-the-go through intentionally designed products, while making a positive impact on the planet. Their goal is to pull 1 million pounds of plastic from the ocean by the end of 2020. For every item sold, Solgaard pulls five pounds of plastic from the ocean. They have partnered with The Plastic Bank, who works with teams in the Philippines creating jobs for locals to pull plastic out of the ocean and upcycle that plastic into useful goods.
Solgaard has removed all single use plastics from their materials, and they upcycle ocean waste into great products.
