Our Story

 

Wanderlust is defined as a strong desire to travel near or far. We started this company to support our dreams of diversifying our global perspective and broadening our traveling horizons. Purchasing a Wanderlust Wrap not only supports our journey abroad, but also allows us to make a difference in the lives of students wanting to travel the world. Our wraps are handmade with love and uniquely different for every individual. 

We are students from the University of Iowa returning from a journey of a lifetime on called Semester at Sea. Imagine packing two large bags and joining 500 other students from around the world on an embarkation across thousands of nautical miles. Semester at Sea is a ship that travels to over 11 different countries and 15 cities in just 106 days. During this time, we were able to earn academic credit, see wonders of the world, and make an impact with community service opportunities.

As we continue to grow, we are working to create a scholarship program for students that are wanting to broaden their global perspective. After our experiences seeing the world, we believe that everyone deserves the chance to have the same opportunities, no matter their financial status.

We started this business at the end of May of 2018. Since then, we have joined the Founder's Club for student entrepreneurs attending the University of Iowa. Being a part of this entrepreneurial community will allow us to network with local mentors, scale our business, and continue to pursue our entrepreneurial dreams.  

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support thus far! We are excited to be able to help other students in the future.
