Labels We Love: Trek Light Gear
We all love a Spring home decor refresh. As we emerge from winter months, we seek to bring in the new vibrant and colorful landscape of outdoors inside creating our own little haven and dreamy oasis. Trek Light Gear is the line you have lusting after in all of those beautiful home inspiration photos filling up your feed. Trek Light Gear’s husband and wife team of Seth & Heather Haber set out to find a way to make those dreamy bed aand bath designs a reality which began with their simple mission “to build a business with heart. A business that would be centered on happiness, a business that would give back with every sale, and one that would inspire its customers to share that happiness with others. Or, in seven words: Feel Good. Do Good. Pass It On.” Whether you’re a maximalist who can’t get enough of Trek Light Gear’s fun prints and playful aesthetic, a minimalist who lives for earthy tones and textured textiles, or if you love the timelessness of a relaxed aesthetic of a seaside escape, ahead you’ll find all of the inspiration to help transform your own home and charming nooks with these lust-worthy pieces.
Tell us about the overall concept of the line.
Our product offering has evolved significantly throughout our 20-year history – we started out in 2003 selling a unique, lightweight hammock with a mission to help people relax more, to spread happiness, and to give back by planting trees for every sale. Our mission as a brand has remained the same, but over the last two decades we’ve expanded into a wide range of lifestyle products for our customers to use at home and wherever they roam.
How would you describe the line in 3 words?
Happiness, magic, comfort
What inspired you to create the line?
We wanted to create a business that puts happiness first – not just with our product design, but by building an authentic brand that gives back with every sale and treats our customers like family. The product line continues to grow and evolve, but no matter the product, we stay true to our goal to help our customers feel good, do good, and pass it on to others.
What makes your products so unique and innovative?
We prioritize quality, ethical manufacturing, and sustainability whenever we’re developing a new product and all of our goods are designed to inspire happiness within yourself and those around you. A number of our products, like our handwoven blankets and robes, are handmade in small batches – which means that each item is truly a unique, one-of-a-kind work of art. In the U.S. especially, almost everything we buy these days is machine-made and mass-produced, so it’s really meaningful for us to be able to support those traditions of weaving, creativity, and small batch production – all while getting to make really cool, heirloom products that bring you happiness every time you use them.
Where do you draw your inspiration from when designing the pieces?
We get our inspiration from all the things we love – our time spent traveling, exploring nature, late nights with friends, and even from the music we listen to. We’re based in Colorado, which means we’re lucky to be constantly surrounded by beauty and epic landscapes that keep us inspired. We’re also passionate about travel and visiting new places to find fresh ideas. Seeing live music is also one of our favorite pastimes and has directly or indirectly inspired so many of our designs and product ideas.
What are your ultimate Spring season Must-Haves from the line?
Spring is a perfect time to take our handwoven throw blankets out for a picnic in the park, or for getting cozy around the backyard firepit.
Our line of towels are also perfect for a spring refresh in your bathroom, and also for travel, yoga, beach days, and more.
And our handwoven robes are a great way to welcome in those sunny spring days sipping coffee by the window, or bringing along on an upcoming trip to use as a beach wrap or for lounging around your AirBnB or hotel.
Any upcoming product launches you can tell us about?
2023 is our 20th year in business and it’s already shaping up to be our biggest year of product launches ever. In addition to towels and robes, we just launched our new line of Everyday Fanny Packs (which convert to a crossbody shoulder sling) and expanded our cozy sock collection with some fun new designs. We’ve also got a growing number of new styles and colorways in the works to expand our current lines – new blankets, towels, robes, mugs, hats, and more are all making their way from dream to reality soon. And we’ve also got a few more surprises lined up that we can’t share yet!
