I am so excited...
to share this product with you. For me, it is much more than just an elegant travel scarf. It is the first step to change. It means letting go of heavy bags and contingency plans and just going with the flow. That's why the motto, "Free your hands, free your life!" resonates from deep within.
Thank you in advance for your time and support and I hope you join me one day in answering, "How do you Banue?"
The idea came to me while I was in Barcelona, Spain. Just a few months earlier I had quit my job, moved out of my Manhattan apartment, sold most of my personal belongings and decided to follow my dream to explore the world. I didn't have any particular plans, except to allow myself to break out of the routine and just go with the flow.
As I traveled through Europe I witnessed pick pockets steal phones, purses, wallets--whatever was in arm's reach--from unsuspecting victims almost every day. I remember feeling anxious every time I stepped out. I just wanted to explore in peace. Then one day it hit me--I wish my scarf had pockets to keep my personal things safe and secure! The idea for the Banue Travel Scarf was born.
The Banue Travel Scarf is an original design that features two hidden zippers on either end of the scarf and various size stitched compartments within for: credit cards, ID, passport, phone, mp3 player, chapstick and much more! It also uses discreet velcro strips and a point-to-point configuration to secure the scarf in over seven different looks--while still looking stylish!
Perfect for travelers, young professionals, people on the go, fashionistas, young teens or anyone looking to lighten their load.
Currently we use polyester blends; however, I continue to travel around the world in search of the best and most unique fabrics to ensure comfort, durability and fashionable looks for your traveling needs--whether you're headed across town or around the globe!
Next stop: Central and South America.
With your support we will literally be able to kickstart the manufacturing of scarfs, stock more designs on our website and ship to boutiques around the world! We will also use funds to finalize the patent process and file a non-provisional patent (currently pending) in order to protect our original design.
Some ways the Banue Travel Scarf will free your life:
- Keeps items hidden, safe and organized! No more searching for keys, phone or lip gloss at the bottom of your purse.
- Easily file business and personal receipts in separate compartments.
- Handsfree lifestyle. No more searching for hooks in bathrooms, restaurants or coffee shops. Ever think about all the germs your purse or briefcase collects on these floors?
- Keeps you warm on cold days and cool on hot--depending on which configuration you choose to use.
- Eases you through security at airports and buildings by providing one place to throw extra jewelry, change, etc. Retrieve items at your own convenience after settling into your seat.
- Helps protect from nerve damage, neck/back injury and broken capillaries that are caused by carrying oversized, heavy purses or bags on one shoulder.
- Subtly disguises those few extra pounds picked up from Oktoberfest in Germany :)
- Dresses up or down any outfit depending on how you wear it.
- Most importantly, this is an original, patent-pending design that cannot be found anywhere else!
Explore the world. Create memories. Enjoy life!
