Hi there! I'm Kenny, the founder of The Wander Club. :)
After college, I sold everything I owned and bought a one-way ticket to Thailand. For 8+ months, I got to travel the world! But for 8+ months I also had to lug around a heavy bag of random souvenirs...
There was no way for me to commemorate all of my travels in one, easy-to-carry place.
So after I returned home to California, I buckled down in my small bedroom and began crafting a solution to my problems.
I wanted to build something thoughtful, portable, and sustainable that would help me easily revisit the amazing memories from my trip.
And that's how The Wander Club was born!
3 years, 100k+ happy customers, and 100k+ donated meals later, it's safe to say that we've found a tight-knit community of fellow wanderers who love to travel and give back just as much as we do.
And while our team of crafters and our workshop has grown a bit, our mission remains the same:
To help people keep their travel memories alive while feeding children in need with every order placed.
Now you can start or gift a handcrafted travel collection and keep all the best memories from afar, well...not far. ;)
We look forward to traveling the world with you. 🌎
Vanessa was born in France, so she's a dual citizen - lucky duck! She is PADI scuba certified and her dream is to one day swim with whales! 🐋
Jamie is a digital nomad and travels the world, working remotely as she goes! In her free time, she loves sailing and spending time on the water. ⛵

Sean is a biking aficionado and has even biked from L.A. to San Diego (and back) before! When he's not biking, he loves practicing magic tricks! 🪄
Jimmy is our resident cinephile and loves nothing more than spending time in a movie theater with his family. He has a special place in his heart for Marvel! 🎥

Makes A Difference!
For every order placed, The Wander Club provides a meal to a hungry child in need with the help of our non-profit partner, Rice Bowls!
As a community, we're proud to have been able to donate 100k+ meals together.
Thank you so much for your continued support! ❤️
At The Wander Club, we believe quality and sustainability can go hand-in-hand.
That's why we're proud to use both sustainable vegan leather and full-grain, vegetable-tanned leather for our products. Not only is it the strongest and most beautiful kind of leather you can get, but it's also 95% better for the planet than commonly used chemical-tanned leather.
While the process of vegetable tanning leather is extremely labor-intensive and more expensive for us, we wouldn't have it any other way.
We are also exclusively using 100% plastic-free shipping materials, as well as offering 100% recycled and recyclable packaging materials, and reusing as much of our necessary plastic use as possible (e.g. mailing back plastic sleeves to our vendors for repurposing).
Your support here helps raise the demand for more eco-friendly materials around the world!
