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, 80k+ 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! 🐋
Karissa is a wildly talented artist who loves working on collages and pop art! 🎨 When she's not creating beautiful work, she comfort-binges The Office.
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. ⛵
Courtney loves staying active! She's ran 2 half marathons and won 2 conference championship gold medals in college rowing. 🚣♀️
Craftsmanship is in Ted's blood. The son of an artist and a cobbler, he grew up learning the ropes of his great-grandfather's hardware business. 🔨
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 moving towards using 100% plastic-free shipping materials, 100% recycled and recyclable shipping materials, and empowering our community to make their orders carbon neutral with our shipping partner, EcoCart.
Your support here helps raise the demand for more eco-friendly maaterials around the world!
