We originally launched Salt Atlas as a travel bag company, bringing together a community of surfers, yogis, and sun chasers around the world through our shared love of travel. We wanted to inspire people to explore the world and go on adventures on a whim, with our functional, tropical, all-weather bags that made traveling easier.
But as all travelers know, things don’t always go according to plan, and as borders started to close we realized that traveling might not ever be the same. Although this sudden shift in how we live and connect came unwelcome, it sparked an idea.
Since we are lucky to be able to stay connected with friends and love ones anywhere in the world through the combination of technology and memories, we brainstormed ways we could help keep everyone’s blissful memories of travel alive.
Jess, the owner and designer/artist, is a surfer and traveler herself, and came from a surf industry background designing for companies like Billabong and PacSun before launching Salt Atlas.
Tropical prints and surf gear are her specialties, but during these times she wanted to design gifts that helped us stay connected; something personalized and sentimental that brings back memories of a first date on an island, an epic birthday surf trip, or a beach wedding in paradise.
Take a look around the shop and see what new stuff we’ve come up with. We’d love to help you share a memory and send a smile.
