Every Story Has A Silver Lining
Traveling all my life has given me a unique perspective on people, different cultures and definitely packing! When preparing for a trip, I’d stare at my suitcase, wonder what to pack, and recall my father’s old adage: “You pack it, you carry it”. I would make a list (my mom’s influence), carefully set out the items I was planning to take, pack, organizing my suitcase to maximum efficiency. I honed this skill to a true art form.
During my trip and on the way home, however, it was a completely different story.I always seemed to have an issue finding a place for my dirty laundry. Like many folks, I would use plastic grocery bags for my dirty clothes and hide them in the closet or put them in my suitcase. If I ran out of bags I would tuck the used clothing into the zippered compartment of my suitcase. This was a hassle because I would have to pull my suitcase out of the closet or from under the bed a few times a day. When it came to packing for the trip home, any clean clothes would have to be packed with the dirty laundry from the trip. Even though I had “separated” my dirties in plastic bags, the entire contents of my suitcase would end up having to be washed when I got home, which was the last thing I wanted to do. “There has to be a better way,” I thought to myself.
Okay, I didn’t just think to myself, I actually did something about it. I created the ultimate travel bag: the TLC Travel Laundry Bag! Although I came up with the idea for the Travel Laundry Bag over twenty years ago, my vision wasn’t realized until 2013 when I started TLC. With my original designs in hand I met with a seamstress and created my first prototypes. After a year of real-world testing and invaluable feedback from experienced travelers, I refined my design until I created the perfect travel laundry bag. Quality is essential to me so I made the commitment to source all my fabric and raw materials from companies in the USA. I now work out of a small factory in Orange County and have put every resource I have (and then some) into bringing Travel Laundry Bags to you!
