About Us:

Unbound Merino was created by three lifelong friends. We spent our high school days following our favorite bands across America. Every time we came home, all we could think about was saving enough money for the next big adventure.

It didn’t take long until we turned our sights on the rest of the world. Like many seasoned travelers, we were drawn to the impressive performance properties of Merino wool. The fabric was perfectly suited for travel, but it was typically designed as outdoor activewear, with flashy logos and unnecessary embellishments. Sure, it performed great on a hike, but we wanted something that also looked great at a restaurant, in a museum, at a rock concert, and out on the town.

Unbound Merino was created to solve a problem that we all shared. After years of researching, designing and prototyping, we partnered with industry leaders to create the most versatile and highest-performing Merino wool clothing that’s made specifically for travel and everyday life. Our purpose is to create simple, high-performance clothing that is versatile enough for any occasion.

It’s really that simple, and it works. Imagine if your next big trip was luggage free. No check-in, no waiting, and no worries. You’d breeze right past the horde at the baggage carousel. You’d beat the taxi rush. You’d be off and away — free to move whenever inspiration or opportunity struck. You’ll be more aware and focused, in harmony with the moment, and able to enjoy the culture that surrounds you. Take one trip without the physical and mental burden of luggage and you’ll never travel the same way again.
