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.
