The new TUO travel organizer proves that it is possible to pack better
June 2015 – On average, only half of travelers unpack their luggage at a hotel while on vacation or a business trip causing clothing and small items to become unorganized as they are rifled through each morning. Personal items like undergarments can quickly disappear among the chaos resulting in stress and delays. The new TUO ultimate travel undergarment organizer will allow travelers to organize their undergarments or small items neatly in a foldable bag which acts as a portable closet for their trip.
Launched on Kickstarter on July 21, 2015, the TUO is made of a water resistant nylon fabric and features three see-through mesh zippered compartments to pack and organize undergarments, accessories and small clothing items together. Its compact design helps save space in the suitcase, unfolds and features a detachable handle to hang it from the closet or towel bar to access items easily. There are also two sets of internal pockets to increase privacy and separation of smaller items and a mini dirty laundry bag with two pockets to help sort items as needed. When travelers are ready to leave the hotel, they simply need to fold the bag in thirds, snap the side buttons, and they’re ready to go.
The TUO is an ideal solution when a family or a couple are sharing a suitcase to keep small clothing items organized as well as perfect for showering in a gym or spa locker room as it can be secured to the shower bar and keep clothing items dry and off the floor. In addition, it can help save the embarrassment of undergarments falling out of the suitcase in airport security or customs.
“Packing for a vacation or business trip can be extremely stressful trying to organize essential items and optimizing luggage space without exceeding airline luggage weight or size restrictions,” said Connie Chen, the designer and founder of Origami Unicorn. I designed the TUO to be lightweight and allow travelers to keep small items organized throughout their vacation or business trip with minimal effort.”
The Kickstarter campaign hopes to raise an initial funding goal of $15,000 USD and will offer Early Bird specials as well as several stretch goals after the initial funding goal is met. During the 35-day campaign, pledgers will have the opportunity to fund and pre-order items including the TUO and mini laundry bag as well as gift packages in a variety of colors and styles. Following the Kickstarter campaign, the first TUO organizers for direct consumer sales are expected to be available by Q4 2015. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1257838137/tuo-the-ultimate-travel-undergarment-organizer/description
