When navigating a major airport with the Paravel carry-on aviator, not only will you look stylish, but you'll be positively impacting the environment. Named a 2021 Travel + Leisure Global Vision Award Winner, Paravel was launched just five years ago by co-founders Indré Rockefeller and Andy Krantz. The duo has reimagined luggage, creating travel goods with a timeless aesthetic and forward thinking sustainability.
Like many success stories, Paravel’s vision came into clearer focus thanks to travel. In 2018, Rockefeller went on a polar expedition to Antarctica with The Nature Conservancy. Witnessing climate change first hand prompted her to move sustainability to Paravel’s top priority. The company has since upcycled two million (and counting) plastic water bottles, offset 8,150 tons of C02 via its carbon-neutral shipping program, and planted 35,000+ trees through Eden Reforestation Projects.
Products are time-tested and resilient, with functional designs crafted for the modern traveler. Favorites include the aforementioned Aviator Carry-On, which fuses sustainable design with technical performance, and the Negative Nylon FoldUp, which can be folded into the size of a water bottle for maximum efficiency or extra luggage when packing home overseas goodies.
Additionally, canvas duffels, totes, and organizers can be monogrammed with dozens of colors, vibrant embroidery, and hand-painted letters and emojis.
Getting—and staying—organized is a cinch, too, with Paravel’s Fold-Up Wash Kit, See-All Vanity, and the brilliant Packing Cube Quad. What’s more, products are made from EcoCraft Canvas made from upcycled water bottles, sustainable and recycled vegan leather, recycled polycarbonate, and recycled zippers—all engineered to leave a minimal footprint.-- tourparavel.com
