The company was founded by Clare Edwards, an artist with 15 years experience of producing large scale mosaics and sculpture. As an experienced traveller and busy mum, she identified a gap in the market for a portable lap tray that would be suitable to carry when travelling. Existing trays were too cumbersome. Clare decided to design a unique lap tray bag that would provide storage for essential belongings that is streamlined and durable.
