Colors can speak volumes and those volumes usually tell a pretty accurate story of who we are. Just as a name enhances ones’ personality, so do colors! We all know a Jim, and that Jim is a “brown,” isn’t he? We have two children and they could not be any more different. We wanted to specially create colors that will carry (pun intended) their personalities in them.

The States Blue Duffel Bag: content, dreamer, sentimental, complimentary 

Our retro blue duffel bag is inspired by those countless pitstops of cloud gazing and endless questioning. We don’t expect you to have all of the answers, we just ask you to listen to the talker, discover with the inquisitive and dream with the dreamer. This bag is for the soft, the sentimental and the content… because heaven knows we all need (and secretly want to be) one of those in our lives.

The States Yellow Duffel Bag: energizing, carefree, creative, imaginative

Our golden yellow duffel bag is inspired by that final moment of daylight and the acknowledgement that the sun gives you for experiencing a day as rich as she could have dreamed for you. Just as the sun is unharnessed, so is the carrier of this bag. It is for those energetic imaginative ones, those always striving to live life to the fullest and warm all of those in their path.

The States Black Duffel Bag: constant, reliable, dependent, loyal

Our classic black duffel bag is inspired by the open road. When everything else in life may be unknown, like your direction or your destination, there is always the companionship of a highway to count on. May our black duffel bag serve as your constant, your reliable, your loyal bag for all of your spontaneous travels to come.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

 

We travel, we parent, we document, and we want other families to do the same…simply. When it comes to parenting, there is an overabundance of advice, instructions, manuals, etc. in the world… to the point of exhaustion and debilitation. Traveling with children should not be feared, it should be celebrated! Regardless of how often you travel or how many children you have, we want you to know that it should not be difficult. We want families to travel simple, so they have more time and energy to focus on what’s important… one another!

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

As traveling parents, we have always known what we have wanted to create as far as bags go. The designing process was organic and fairly easy, however, when we got to the production process, that was completely out of our comfort zone. We found a production expert that was able to work us through the process and assist in any unforeseen problems that could arise. We have been working with a manufacturer that only produces the highest quality of bags and has been willing to revise our prototype a number of times until our expectations were not only reached but exceeded.

Since we are dealing with a manufacturer, the only risk and challenge that we could see, would be the amount of time it would take from placing an order and then actually receiving product. To compensate for this risk, we have allowed a larger window between order and estimated delivery times so that we can hopefully complete deliveries earlier than expected.

    Travel Pin Set
