When I was younger I changed by purses like I changed my hair colour — a lot. But now I don’t have the time or patience to be changing from one purse to another every day and doing the frantic 15-minute search every morning for which purse my keys are in. No, thank you. I need one tote, that looks great and can fit my laptop, lunch and makeup bag and won’t fall off the top of my suitcase when I am so glamorously taking two busses and a ferry to get to Victoria Island every holiday (not glamorous at all).
That’s why I’m grateful for the design and functionality of Vesper Faering’s latest product the Sazerac Tote, designed by today’s guest, Andrea Drager. Andrea is the co-founder of the bespoke travel essentials company. As a former consultant and frequent flyer, Andrea knows how critical it is to have the right tools when you are constantly on the go. She designed the Vesper Faering Sazerac and Sidecar bags with these essentials in mind. Or actually let’s you design them, I should say. One of the many cool things about Vesper Faering is that the bags are customizable to suit your own design preferences and needs. The best part is SBT listeners get 10% off their own bag using promo code SBTVIP.
On today’s show I join Andrea at her home in Vancouver, BC to learn more about her reasons for starting Vesper Faering, and her passion behind creating travel products that are timeless, functional and good for the planet.
