Letter to Travelers after Shark Tank

February 25, 2015

We’ve finally come up for air after a TOTE-ally unreal Shark Tank weekend! We’re still pinching ourselves to make sure we aren’t dreaming, and we have yet to wipe the smiles off our faces. We got way more than a one-time investment from a shark… We got thousands of investors like you who believe in the Taaluma movement!

YOU have kept amazing cultures alive through their equally amazing fabrics. YOU have hired 15 more people on to our manufacturing team in Virginia. YOU have microloaned over $50,000 in just 48 hours. It’s safe to say, YOU are an investor in Taaluma!

So to those of you who are already traveling with us, thank you, thank you, thank you for making this more than just a “backpack company”. Together we’re connecting this world’s awesome cultures, awesome people, & awesome places—one tote at a time.

And to those of you who think we’re crazy—we totally agree. But sometimes the crazy things in life are the ones worth fighting for. So if you're crazy enough to join us, pack your tote, because this is going to be a trip to remember...

-- Jack & Alley, Co-Founders
