As online shopping has skyrocketed over the last year, so too has our collective awareness of how we’re spending our money. Whether we’re shopping for pretty items to spruce up our home, more cozy sets to work, lounge, and fly in, or skincare products to replicate a spa day at home, we want to know our dollars are going toward brands that align with our values, be it by way of sustainable production practices or a mission we can stand behind. Part of that shopping ethos means supporting women-owned, founded, and led businesses: Women have been hit hardest by pandemic job losses, especially those in the travel industry, and are historically the least funded group of people, with women of color impacted the most severely.
We asked Traveler editors to share their favorite women-owned businesses in the travel space. Below, 14 options to consider the next time you are in need of comfortable road-trip-ready leggings, a backpack you can take from the plane to the office, or a pair of cashmere socks to pack on that much-anticipated long-haul flight to come.
