Backpacks That Carry A Country
"Shippo has allowed us to leave the hugely important step of shipping label management in the hands of people we trust. We've worked so hard to build a product and brand that we're proud of and it feels good to know that the crew at Shippo works equally hard to make the best shipping app possible. It saves us tons of time AND money, and they're always so responsive with support any time we need it. We couldn't do what we do without them!"Taaluma Totes
Founded by two 20-somethings with a thirst for adventure, color, and giving back, Taaluma Totes was created to bring spunk and local culture to an everyday item - backpacks. Jack & Alley travel the world to countries like Mali, Ivory Coast, Guatemala, and Indonesia, collecting beautiful, traditional fabrics. The totes are then made out of these fabrics in the USA by adults with disabilities. 20% of all proceeds go back to your tote's country in the form of a microloan to support farmers and small business owners.
--Taaluma was started after Jack & Alley spent a summer of traveling on 3 different continents.
--The fabrics are wacky. That means that each tote is limited edition, sold until that fabric is all out!
--Their Instagram feed is awesome.
--Taaluma was on the latest season of Shark Tank!
