Our Story


Salt Atlas was built upon the love of beach culture and the feeling that everyone gets when traveling to a distant tropical paradise. Our goal is to bring a piece of that paradise to you, no matter where you are or where you go.

Our pieces are impeccably designed to evoke that tropical feel. Founder and designer Jess is an avid traveler herself, and as a former textile designer at Billabong, she loves to create new tropical and beachy prints. She uses inspiration gathered from all over the world to give our bags a unique look that will have people asking you, "where did you get that bag?"

All of our bags have also been tested in the real world through various worldly adventures. Through these “field tests” we have added what we now know as must-have features such as key clips to securely store your keys when your bathing suit has no pockets.  All bags have waterproof lining, and the Drifter Beach Tote and the Voyager Duffle have shoe compartments for storing wet and dirty items, ranging from muddy hiking boots to salty wetsuits. No detail is too small, we’ve even designed with snap button enclosures instead of velcro which has a tendency to trap sand that negatively affects its performance.

Here at Salt Atlas we’re driven by design and functionality, but also by preserving our planet. All of our bags feature vegan leather and eco friendly nylon that have been tested for durability. They were designed to look good, function well, be kind to earth, and last for a very long time.

We hope you enjoy using our bags as much as we’ve enjoyed designing them. Take them on your travels and make sure to tag us in your social media pics with #saltatlas and #cleanearthcrew. As always spread the stoke!
