Our Story

Original, creative and dedicated

I came up with the travel wrap concept back in 2007 and we now sell our beautiful wraps all around the world.

To begin with my concept didn’t have a name. I wanted something more elegant than ‘travel shawl' or ‘travel blanket'. 'Travel wrap' came to me in the kitchen as my husband and I were cooking Sunday lunch. And so The Travelwrap Company was born.

“It’s true there are other ‘travel wraps’ on the market these days, but I don’t believe there is anything that compares with ours in terms of quality and attention to detail.”

Before founding The Travelwrap Company I spent 18 months looking for the right mill to knit for us. I wanted the cashmere to be the most luxurious available and the colours to be vivid and full of depth and intensity. But I also wanted our cashmere to be sustainably sourced.

Johnstons of Elgin, which produces some of the finest cashmere in the world, was the perfect fit. My team and I visit the mill in Scotland several times a year and it’s always a treat to watch the skilled men and women who work there transforming the soft ‘cotton wool’ like fibres of raw cashmere into our exquisite cashmere travel wraps.

We now offer around 35 cashmere travel wraps in a range of colour palettes, designs, knits and weights. In the initial stages we work with our knitwear designer on ideas for new knits, poring over colour swatches, creating sketches and then working these into our computerised design software. We aim to launch seven or eight new travel wrap collections a year.

We are so proud to work with Johnstons of Elgin every step of the way, from design to finished travel wraps, creating our timeless pieces which will last for years to come.

We pride ourselves not just on the fine craftsmanship of our travel wraps but on the level of service we offer, with free delivery worldwide and free returns in the UK and US

If you have any queries you can call and talk to a real person or reach us via Facebook or Instagram.

Dear Travelwrap Customers, thank you for your continued support and loyalty to our small business during this difficult time.

The Travelwrap Company operates from an office beside my home and so are able to carry on operating. We have in place strict hygiene and safety policies to ensure our little team is working safely & mostly working virtually. I am also helping to get the orders out.

We continue to send our Scottish cashmere wraps out to customers in the UK and all over the world. Please give us a ring or drop us a line if you are unsure of something or need some help ordering. We use DPD and DHL, both couriers are operating in the UK & globally within our advised timelines as per our website. Just a note to our Australian customers, orders are getting there within our timelines but with some slight delays.  (standard delivery is taking approx. 8-10 days to Australia)

We continue to hear first- hand from our customers around the world that one of our Scottish cashmere wraps is a lovely thing to wrap around yourself or buy for a loved one that could do with a #Virtualhug. We are now offering a monogrammed heart (alongside other embroidery options). If you would like to nominate a healthcare worker to receive a cashmere wrap. Please visit our virtual hug page.

Stay safe and well.

Niamh (CEO, The Travelwrap Company)
