Here is another Vermont made product that I am very excited to share with you: the FUNky Wrap! FUNky wrap creator Tricia O’Connor told us that she began this line just one year ago when all she had was a scarf to carry her smartphone during a run. First she created the Waist Wrap. Now don’t think that I am talking about a fanny pack. This product is so much more stylish and comfortable. It’s compact enough to look like a stylish belt, but has enough room to carry your essential items; for me that includes my phone, keys and a few tissues.
Tricia didn’t stop there. She wanted to create more products that could be used by athletes or people just out and about who don’t want a large purse or bag with them. Here is more from Tricia: “During this process I was happy with the creation of the WaistWrap but soon after decided I was not quite ready to finish the product line. This led to the creation of the VersaWrap with came to me while completing of of my long distance training runs. When I returned home I was so excited I immediately started to initiate the creation of this product. This particular wrap enables the user to wear it around the waist, slung over the shoulder, or as a backpack.”
I like to consider myself a casual runner, though more often than not you’ll find me walking! I LOVE my waist wrap and use it all the time! Just this morning I headed out on a 5 mile run with nothing more than my phone in my waist wrap. It’s easy to tie around my waist, hides under my shirt, and is very light weight. I want one in every color! Check out some of Tricia’s colorful fabrics on her Facebook page.
Next Tricia decided to start making headbands in a variety of fabrics, colors, and patterns. She sent me the great headband above and I think that it’s pretty awesome, very cool, and FUN. Note that my seven year old was my photographer of the day when we took these pictures:
Tricia’s motto is “if you can’t sweat in it….you won’t find me selling it”. I say grab a headband, grab a FUNky Wrap, and go see Vermont! Enjoy all that our great state has to offer!
Happy & stylish sweating,
