Meet the real ist
The thought of the IST Roams began during my 8 month solo trip to 23 countries in 2015. I took a sabbatical from work to regroup, switch it up a bit and see the world. I often found myself wishing there was a t-shirt to express what I was experiencing and feeling during my travels, and began taking notes on how I felt as a solo traveler, a woman, a person of color and a foreigner. Some were funny, others expressed my hurt or annoyance, but most expressed my joy.
As I continued to travel over the years, my tastes & requirements in clothing and accessories evolved. I began to favor comfort, styles that didn’t require ironing, excessive maintenance or a lot of pieces to make a cute outfit.
Items that were lightweight & small enough to fit into carry-on luggage became a must. My wardrobe and home were also becoming as internationally influenced as I was. I’d look around my room and see a dress from India, scarf from Turkey, shoes from Morocco and a bed tapestry from Vietnam. They were treasures that fondly reminded me of awesome trips, and inspired for ones to come.
Since traveling is my favorite hobby, I found it fitting to create the IST Roams logo with the depiction of a worldly, confident, carefree & fashionable traveler ready to take flight.
