Circling the globe to provide food and resources for communities in need through her social business FEED (you know, the purveyor of those super chic, mission-driven burlap bags), Lauren Bush Lauren knows a thing or two about traveling. So it’s no surprise the company partnered with the field guide gurus at Wildsam for the launch of its Travel Collection — a line of duffles, luggage tags, patches, city guides and more that look good and do good.
“Travel is such a huge part of the brand — the idea for FEED was inspired by my travels as a student ambassador for the World Food Programme to places like Guatemala and Chad,” Lauren told Us. “We wanted to design a versatile collection that can go anywhere and our friends at Wildsam make great recommendations for traveling stateside! We chose some of our favorite cities from their existing city guides and designed chain stitch patches that embody the spirit and history of each place.”
Like all FEED products, each bag, patch, city guide and accessory in the Travel Collection (which launched this week just in time for Memorial Day Weekend getaways) provides school meals for children around the globe. Whether she’s hanging out on the Bush and Lauren family compounds in Texas, Maine and Colorado or embarking on a FEED mission, the mom of two (she just welcomed her second child with husband David Lauren) is a pro at keeping things simple and chic, so you can imagine our excitement when she let Us pick her brain about all things travel-related.
