I travel a lot! Italy, France, England, Ireland, Scotland, USA, Canada, New Zealand, Slovenia, Croatia, Switzerland, Germany, Spain, Iceland, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Singapore, Portugal and my absolute favourite, Antarctica, are some of the places I've been.
As much as I love travelling, there are certain places where I'm afraid my passport, money or credit cards may be stolen - especially in countries where we don't speak the language.
You know those places - cities where subway voiceovers tell you to be careful of pickpockets, or where people try to sell you flowers while sticking their hand in your pocket or waist bag...... I've even heard of a friend's uncle, a seasoned traveller who was wearing a money pouch around his calf, hopped on a train and in a few stops the pouch was cut from his leg without him even feeling it!
Being the practical person I am, I've created the perfect travel undies!
Squirrl undies are made from premium soft, comfortable cotton with a secret and hygienic front pocket to hide your money, credit cards, travellers cheques, passport and other important papers.
Personally, I've been known to leave my handbag in a restaurant only for it to be stolen. So, to Lynda-proof my holiday, I wear Squirrl undies all the time when I'm overseas, even in places that don't worry me.
I've worn Squirrl undies to festivals so if stuff is stolen from my tent it won't be important; and also to concerts and events so I don't have to take a handbag with me.
Squirrl undies are manufactured in the western suburbs from cotton woven and dyed locally and even our packaging is made in the west!
Squirrl's mission is to make travel safer every day - in Australia and overseas. In August 2020 we wanted to improve the ability of women in Victoria and Australia to travel more safely due to COVID.
We began selling a range of non-medical, water proof masks to women and children over 12 around Australia. We expanded the range to include a larger size mask - and we've found that men like them too.
Squirrl masks are made in Medellin, Colombia, one of the world's oldest textile manufacturing locations.
It's very important to us that we use only ethical manufacturers which treat their staff lawfully and respectfully and as we have visited the factories in both Braybrook and Medellin, we can guarantee they have safe working conditions, no child labour and award wages. It's important to me to make sure Squirrl doesn't add to the problems of the world.
Squirrl is a company located in the western suburbs of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Our team is from the western suburbs of Melbourne and we are very proud to be running a global business from Melbourne's west.
