If you are the kind of woman that loves to travel, and you like to wear dresses on your adventures, you'll know that those dresses were never made for sprinting to catch your next flight, hopping on a scooter, trying to outrun instant torrential downpours or any of the other things that may happen while on the road. Between fabrics that wrinkle and smell awful after only one wear, to styles that have a complete lack of pockets, we were fed up.

Our expert team has created the Kosan Go Travel Dress with the world traveller in mind. Designed to enhance your journey, it is loaded with traveller-friendly features that will keep you safe, organized, and looking your best.

                              

When travelling, versatility is key. You want to pack as little as possible while getting maximum wearability. The Kosan Go Travel Dress has an adjustable length; meaning regardless of the occasion, we’ve got you covered.

Comfort is king (or in this case queen), right? Our luxurious fabric has four-way stretch and just enough structure to ensure maximum comfort whether you’re sitting on a plane from Los Angeles to Australia, or biking through the backroads of Bulgaria.

The Go Travel Dress has four hidden pockets for everything from your phone and passport, to your cash, cards & lip balm. There are two large side pockets that are hidden by the use of invisible zippers, and two slots in the bust area.

Our fabric is naturally wrinkle resistant. Simply smooth out wrinkles with your hands, throw in the dryer, or hang up for a quick and easy fix.

Our fabric is treated with an anti-bacterial finish with odour-blocking properties. The Kosan Go Travel dress can be worn for multiple days without needing to be washed.

Our durable, quick-dry fabric is machine washable – meaning you will never have to worry about shrinkage or finding a dry cleaner.

Sweat-soaked clothing and outfit changes are one thing you won’t have to worry about with the Go Travel Dress. Our innovative technology wicks away moisture from the skin for significantly faster drying time and all-day comfort to take you from day to night.

Spending some time in the sun on your next adventure? Not to worry; the Kosan Go Travel Dress is rated up to 40+ UPF to ensure you’re always protected. The dress is also lined for added comfort and coverage.

                                   

Need help finding the perfect fit? Not to worry! Check out our handy sizing chart below or e-mail styleme@kosantravel.com for some personal assistance.

You will have the opportunity to select both your preferred size and colour after the campaign ends when we send out surveys.

After successfully launching our first product, the Kosan Travel Pack System and Kosan Packing Cubes right here on Kickstarter, we couldn't wait to share our next product with you.

We believe that travel can effect positive change by inspiring new perspectives about the world you live in. The more you travel, the better off the world will be. We also know that the better prepared you are, the more you will be able to enjoy the experience. So, we’ve set out to build the best products for those who travel the world, and our mission is to help our travellers prepare for their journey. 

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you. We wouldn't be here doing what we love if it weren't for all of you! If you have any feedback or questions, please let us know. We love to connect with other travellers.

We care just as much about how something is made and who made it, as we do about the end product itself. From the moment we decided to make a dress, our community of travellers helped us choose the style and colours. In true digital nomad style, our amazing team members were mostly remote during the process of designing the dress but we came together for fittings. We selected an expert dress factory in China and communicated with them every single day!

One of the coolest parts of this campaign was working with Jordan Hammond, Sophia Pope, Lauren Meeker, Iassen Gortchova and Biliana Gortchova on shooting the video and some of the photos you see here. They did an amazing job and we can’t wait to work with them again (thank you guys!).

We want to keep it real here and let you know that we will continually visit our factory partners face to face to check on the extraordinary work they produce.

Risks and challenges

Here at Kosan Travel Co., we stand behind all of our products. If we can't fix or repair a manufacturer's defect, we will replace the product.

RETURN POLICY

We offer a 30-day, no-risk return policy. If you are not 100% satisfied with the quality of the product within 30 days of receiving your order, simply send it back and we will refund you, no questions asked. But don't worry, we know you are going to love it!

CUSTOMS & DUTIES INFORMATION

Our prices DO NOT include VAT, GST or other country taxes. Depending on where you are based, you may incur additional fees such as taxes and duties. As we are shipping these products worldwide, it is impossible for us to build in these variable costs for each location on Kickstarter.

All of our orders will be shipped out of our DC in the US.

For all of our Canadian friends and family, the new free trade agreement is expected to go into effect ahead of shipping which will mean no duty or GST for the first $150 imported (or in this case, one dress!). Should the government twiddle their thumbs all spring, this might not be in place ahead of shipment and you'd be responsible for duties and taxes in the event of import. We'll be looking at options closer to the date to see what we might be able to do to mitigate this.

We suggest using this tool to assist you in calculating potential duties:
https://www.simplyduty.com/import-calculator/

For international customers who are required to pay customs, you will receive an email from your local customs authorities asking for payment to have your order processed through customs. Unfortunately, there is no legal way around customs. Once you make that payment to the customs broker your order will be processed for final delivery.

Please note that Kosan Travel Co. cannot legally mark orders as gifts.

SHIPPING POLICY

If our shipping carriers attempt to deliver your package to you and you do not receive it because you are not there, the address was incorrect, or you moved without letting us know, it will be the buyer's responsibility to pay the shipping fee to reship the order once it arrives back at our warehouse. You will receive a tracking number for your package once it ships out, so please keep an eye out!

POTENTIAL SHIPPING DELAYS:

The current timeline is to ship all rewards in June 2019. There are always potential delays that may occur due to things like customs, weather, vessel bookings and holidays (i.e. Chinese New Year). That being said, we have incuded some breathing room in our production schedule to mitigate any potential issues.

Whatever the obstacle, we'll get through it together. We value our backer community and all the support you've shown us. We take communication and transparency very seriously, and we promise to keep you up-to-date throughout the entire process.
