USA Today reports that U.S. airlines lost an average of 10,000 bags per day(!) in 2005. To help your bags stand out, Travel Chic makes cute, coordinating luggage tags - oversized to make them easily distinguishable - handle wraps, matching tassels and keychains in bright colors, metallics, leather, quilted, faux fur and patterns such as animal prints & houndstooth. Everything is designed to complement the season's fashion trends, not to mention making it easy to find your bag in the crowd.
"At crowded baggage claims and waiting areas around the world, identical luggage is everywhere. For quite some time, people have been creating innovative ways to identify their bags by tying all sorts of things to them," says Kay Ponicall, expert bag dresser and founder of Travel Chic. "With Travel Chic's accessories, today's travelers will be able to spot their luggage at even the most insane airports without resorting to ribbons, ropes, tapes and hair scrunchies! As avid travelers, our goal is to help personalize the travel experience and make the journey easier for millions of time-crunched Americans. We've all got baggage...so why not make yours unique?"
The handle wraps fit standard carry-on and luggage handles and the metal fasteners on the tassels clip onto standard rings.
A portion of the proceeds are donated to The Suite Dreams Project - a non-profit organization dedicated to creating dream spaces for sick children. "As a long-time traveler and mother of two children, I want to help put the fun back into travel in a practical way while helping seriously ill children find healing and comfort in their surroundings," notes Ponicall.
Prices for all accessories and coordinating sets are less than $30 at TravelChic.com.
