ZIPPERTRAVEL is the newest venture by the creators of Zipper, Steven Saden and Elizabeth Cashour. During the last 20 years, Zipper was a retail store with locations in Los Angeles, Brooklyn, and Sonoma as well as the website, zippergifts.com. Wondering what could be next, on April 30, 2013, Zipper’s founders took the bold step to close up shop and hit the road on their No Regrets Tour.
After 6 months on the road, Elizabeth and Steven decided it was time to share their travel experiences around the world with a blog and social media (pinterest, facebook, and twitter) and ZIPPERTRAVEL was born. ZIPPERTRAVEL offers commentary in the areas of design, fashion, politics, and the arts, and tells you stories of an adventure without regrets. In the past, the store Zipper was about expressing Elizabeth and Steven’s point of view through the artists they represented and merchandise they selected. With ZIPPERTRAVEL, that expression is deepened and expanded by sharing their own views in a new way with personal writings and photographs. The travelers hope you will enjoy seeing the world through their eyes and become inspired to live your own dream to the fullest.
ZIPPERTRAVEL is the “third act” and a fresh start for both Elizabeth and Steven. Steven was a fashion designer on 7th Avenue and Elizabeth was an arts administrator and playwright in New York before moving to Los Angeles and founding Zipper in 1993. Now living in Napa, California, they use the beautiful setting of wine country as their base to travel to new destinations with the motto, “Travel light and dwell in the moment.”
