Travel Fashionably. Dress Ethically.
How it Works
We believe that traveling changes your life. Our travels give us a different perspective that celebrate our differences while ultimately empowering ourselves.
This is also how we feel about style. Loving the way you look reflects how well you relax and enjoy your time away. And that’s what we’re here for. We want to get you packed for a new experience so that you are free to make the most out of your trip.
The driving force behind our style selections are the small business owners and artisans who create the unique items we source. Partnering with eco-friendly, fair trade, socially responsible companies, you can travel easy knowing you're a part of this positive change.
Meet the Founder
Hi. I’m Chelsea. You know when all your stuff is laid out on the bed before you pack it for a trip? That is my happy place. It’s a canvas, made up of colors and textures I’ve spent my whole life amassing.
While serving with the Peace Corps in West Africa 6 years ago, I loved working with local tailors and vibrant fabric patterns to create unique styles and designs. I also loved the Peace Corps incentive to work with locals on improving and supporting their small business ventures.
Fast forward a few years, I started noticing a trend with people in my life who love to travel - when it comes to packing, they totally hate it. They stress about what to wear, rarely have the time and energy, then end up throwing together flip flops and yoga pants.
This was a problem I knew I could solve. That's when Gotcha Packed was born.
