FOR TRAVELERS, BY TRAVELERS

We've lived out of our backpacks, and know exactly what women need on the road. That's why the Versalette is soft, wrinkle resistant, machine washable, quick drying, odor fighting, and made to last hundreds of washes without pilling or fading.

We use a durable, travel-friendly fabric made in Canada, and all Versalettes are sewn in Denver, Colorado — our motto is think globally, act locally.


THE VERSALETTE LAUNCHED ON KICKSTARTER IN 2011

This revolutionary brainchild of two backpackers raised over $64,000 in 30 days, making it the most-funded fashion project of its time. It's been featured in The New York Times, Forbes.comYahoo! News, and Fashionista

Originally designed by Kristin Glenn (founder, Seamly) and Shannon Whitehead (founder, Factory45), the Versalette has evolved to be even more packable and easy to style over the years.
