About

Introducing the Transform Tote, a beautiful zippered carryall crafted from premium American Saffiano leather, with more pockets for your essentials, is easier to stay organized, and could be worn 4 ways so you can get around easier.

Before we get started, 2 quick things:

The Transform Tote comes with detachable and adjustable straps so you can carry it 4 ways: over the shoulder, as a backpack, crossbody, or top handle

It's designed in an beautiful minimalist silhouette that will keep you looking effortlessly chic. 

Carry it all: the Transform Tote features a spacious interior, with smartly placed pockets so you can have all your essentials anytime, anywhere.  

Laptop ready: store your laptop (fits all 13" and standard 15" laptops) or tablet in the padded laptop compartment, because you never know when inspiration strikes.  

Thoughtful details: grab your phone with ease from the spacious hidden smartphone pocket. 

No more spills: keep your drinks in the exterior side pockets so you never have to worry about spills again.  

The Transform Tote is handcrafted from waterproof American Saffiano leather, and is created to accompany you through all your adventures for years to come.

Pond Los Angeles is an independent product design studio. Our founder spent over a decade as a designer at luxury brands such as Ralph Lauren and Giorgio Armani, and we create timeless collections of thoughtful essentials for modern women.

We’re committed to bringing you ethically made, high quality essentials through combining innovative design, expert craftsmanship, and attention to detail. Our creations are thoughtfully made to adapt to your schedule, keep you organized, and help you spend your time on what really matters. 

Return/Refund Policy - While we stand behind our products, we unfortunately cannot offer refunds or returns on non-defective items received as Kickstarter rewards.

In the Kickstarter community, creators seek support from backers to bring their ideas to life. In return, backers receive a “reward” - in this case the Transform Tote, at a highly discounted price as a "thank you" for supporting our business, and helping to turn our vision into reality. 

We chose the Kickstarter route for new product launches because it allows us to stay true to our vision without having to answer to outside investors. It allows us to prioritize innovation, quality, and creating the best product we can, over meeting profit targets that investors would require. The support we receive from our Kickstarter backers allows us to continue to do what we love - create great products that help to make your life easier. 

Duties/Taxes - Please note that our prices DO NOT include VAT, GST, custom duties or other country taxes.

If you live outside of the US, you may be required to pay additional VAT, GST, custom duties, or other country taxes that are due upon delivery. Customs policies vary from country to country, and it'd be impossible for us to build the various duties and taxes into Kickstarter.

Customs - Some international shipments may, from time to time, be subject to cross border inspections by customs authorities. Some countries are slower with customs than others, and we're sorry that we can't help to get your package through faster.

Risks and challenges

This is our second Kickstarter campaign. Last year, we successfully launched our first collection on Kickstarter, and we delivered rewards on schedule to all of our backers.

For the Transform Tote, we're partnering up with the same suppliers as our previous campaign, and we're confident that we can repeat our success and fulfill rewards to you on time.

Our founder has over a decade of experience at global luxury brands, with extensive experience in managing through problems that may arise during the manufacturing process. Occasionally, suppliers may not fulfill on time, and we've added some buffer into our lead time to account for this possibility.
