We are Sara and Alex. Salex if you will. We travel. a lot.
Alex is a graphic and clothing designer. Sara is a filmmaker and artist at heart. Together we love to venture into the unknown, discover new places, people, cultures, languages, music and art.
Last year we were relaxing on the beaches of southern Bali after a long day of surfing. The sun was setting, and we were surrounded with glorious company. It was a reunion with old friends and new – of fellow travelers, old friends, colleagues and classmates. It was there and then that we decided to share one of our crazy ideas of starting a clothing line.
But this is not just any clothing line. We needed share our idea with the exact audience we wanted to “create” for. Fellow travelers, explorers, wanders and the curious mind alike. We figured it was perfect timing.
Hours went by, we shared ideas and everyone unanimously agreed that, “YES! We need better travel gear!” Everyone had their favorite t-shirt, but it had flaws. Everyone had that “wrinkle free dress” but it wasn’t stylish enough. Everyone had that hoodie, but it didn’t hold up. It was then that we knew we were onto something. But it would not be easy to make these staple goods “better”.
So here we begin. We are stepping out into the unknown, researching, sourcing, searching fabrics, researching dyes, yarn and designs alike. As we are in the very early stages of research, we would love to hear from you at anytime with your ideas. After all, it is YOU that we are creating for!
