We believe luggage deserves its time in the sun. You know, instead of being in a garage, or under the bed, or used simply as storage. If we can change the way people are using their neglected luggage and use it to travel instead, we’ll make the world a better place. We’ll make Texas a better place too. Help us end the fight against lonely luggage and enter to win travel getaways all summer!
