As an avid globe-trotter, I was frustrated with the range of (or lack of!) backpacks on the market for us girls. During a 5 month solo trip, as I was island-hopping through the crystal clear waters of the Philippines I found myself pondering a question "Why are backpacks all so dull and boring and masculine?"
A few weeks later, I was sat in a female dorm in Sri Lanka listening to others venting on the exact same issue. As I continued my travels through Nepal and Kenya and spoke to more female travellers, I realised I definitely wasn't alone. And so I decided to solve the problem!
I got to work designing a backpack that would fit the female body comfortably, that was lightweight and durable, that would stand the test of time with high quality, and that (arguably most importantly) looked damn good! My little idea had began to sprout arms and legs, and for the first time on a backpacking adventure I was excited to get home to start something new!
Like most travel enthusiasts, I love and care about nature and our planet. So I wanted to make sure the packs were made from recycled material and as sustainable as possible. So, with several (hundred) rounds of design and sourcing, SunDrift was born - a backpacking brand that represents the bold, brave and beautiful adventure you are on.
Now, I'm very excited to share the SunDrift journey with you. Please feel free to reach out with your questions or suggestions on our growing brand, there is always someone on hand to help!
