Introducing Stylish, Convertible Travel Essentials

We believe that life is an adventure. When you’re on the go - either moving around town or traveling abroad - travel essentials you depend on should be designed to fit your on-the-go lifestyle.

Convertible Backpack & Tote

 

Our Products

We worked with designers to create an origami-inspired line of transportable products for every kind of individual style, bringing creativity and fashionable expression into the realm of backpacks and tote bags today.

Exclusive, Limited Designs By Industry-Leading Artists

We partnered with industry-leading artists to create designs that each bring their own unique expression and styles of art and design.

We are thrilled to work with Ashley G, who is known for creating abstract and brushstroke designs with sophisticated or monochrome color palettes, and Carolyn Suzuki, who is known for her playful prints that start from pencil sketches. We are also excited to collaborate with Kelly Ventura, who is known for her fresh florals, prints, and hand-painted patterns, using watercolor paints.

Collectively, we created a final pool of over 30 different designs that ranged in styles, colors, and prints, and opened the voting up to the public to select the final 3 - Navy Tidal, Pink Breeze, and Black Swans.

Convertible Backpack

This light-weight, yet durable, backpack is stored in a pouch. Expand it to full-size to carry your stuff whilst on the go. It's great for urban adventures, hikes, the gym, and everyday exploration.

Convertible Tote Bag 

This lined large tote bag is stored in a pouch. Expand it to full-size and get the perfect bag for all your daily and trip essentials. It's great for day trips, shopping, the gym, and kids and baby necessities. The tote also easily attaches to luggage to serve as a carry-on.

Essentials Pouch Set

These lined pouches are a must for organizing things in your backpack, tote bag, and any other bag. They're great for storing makeup, wallets, hair accessories, mom emergency kits, and more.

$30,000 - Convertible Everyday Shopper - Folds into a pouch and fits in your pocket. Great for your everyday errands.

Giving Back: 1% For Education 

We believe in the importance of giving back. Today, nearly 800 million people are illiterate, and two-thirds of that statistic are women and girls. Studies have shown that literacy is critical to eradicating poverty, improve infant mortality rates, address gender inequality, and create sustainable development. So for every sale, we will donate 1% of profits to support global children's literacy and girls' education.

Please note that per Kickstarter guidelines, we cannot use this crowdfunding project to raise funds for charity. We are committed to giving back to support global literacy and will notify our backer community.

Thank You For Your Support! 

We appreciate your support in helping make these products a reality. The artists have completed their designs, and we have prototypes of each product. With your monetary support, we’ll be able to get these into products into production and bring more beauty and style to travel goods.

We’d also appreciate your help in sharing our campaign with all your friends and family. Please post the campaign URL on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and any other social media platforms you use. The more people are aware of Kaleido Concepts, the smoother our launch period will go.

Risks and challenges

We have many years of experience developing and manufacturing high-quality products. We are confident in the people we’re working with to bring these products to life and into your hands, and therefore our ability to deliver the products to you when we say we will.

However, sometimes despite our best efforts, there's always a risk that suppliers do not fulfill orders on time, or products can get stuck in customs or ports.

Duty/VAT charges: If you live outside of the US, you will be responsible for any applicable duty/VAT charges.

We'll do our best and update you frequently about our progress. If there are any challenges along the way, we'll let you know!
