Are you tired of the stress and disorganization that comes with packing for a trip? Look no further than travel packing cubes! In this blog post, we will explore what travel packing cubes are, how they work, and whether they are worth the investment. We will also discuss how these eco-friendly and sustainable alternatives to synthetic cubes can assist you in achieving stress-free travel. So, let's dive in!

What are Travel Packing Cubes?

Travel packing cubes are compact, often  lightweight, and versatile organisers designed to keep your belongings neat and tidy during your travels. Unlike traditional packing methods, where clothes and accessories are stuffed haphazardly into a suitcase, packing cubes offer a systematic approach to packing.

Our cubes are unique as they are made from all natural fibres such as Juco,  a fusion of Jute and Cotton,  providing exceptional quality and sustainability as an alternative to Nylon. This eco-friendly choice not only reduces your carbon footprint but also ensures durability and longevity.

How Do Travel Packing Cubes Work?

Travel packing cubes work by compartmentalizing your belongings, allowing you to separate different items into individual cubes. This organisation system helps you easily locate specific items without having to rummage through your entire suitcase.

Here's a step-by-step guide on how to use travel packing cubes:

  1. Sort and categorize: Before you start packing, sort your items into categories such as clothing, accessories, toiletries, and electronics.
  2. Choose the right cube size: Select the appropriate size of packing cube for each category of items. This will ensure a snug fit and maximize space utilization.
  3. Roll or fold: Fold or roll your clothes tightly to minimize wrinkles and maximize space efficiency.
  4. Pack and smell fresh  : Place the folded or rolled items into their respective packing cubes. with our unique netted pocket, fill with handmade soap or lavender to keep your clothes smelling fresh whilst you are on the road  
  5. Arrange in your suitcase: Once all your items are packed into the cubes, arrange them neatly in your suitcase, utilizing every inch of available space.

By following these simple steps, you can transform your packing experience and enjoy a stress-free journey.

Are Travel Packing Cubes Worth the Money?

Now, let's address the question on everyone's mind: Are travel packing cubes worth the investment?

The answer is a resounding yes! Here's why:

  1. Maximized space: Packing cubes allow you to utilise every inch of space in your suitcase efficiently. By compressing your items and keeping them organized, you can fit more into your luggage.
  2. Easy organisation: With packing cubes, you can say goodbye to messy suitcases. Each cube serves as a designated space for specific items, making it easy to find what you need without creating chaos.
  3. Reduced wrinkles: By tightly rolling or folding your clothes and placing them in packing cubes, you can minimize wrinkles and keep your garments looking fresh and presentable.
  4. Quick access: When you arrive at your destination, unpacking becomes a breeze. Instead of rummaging through your entire suitcase, you can simply pull out the relevant packing cube and access your desired items.
  5. Environmentally friendly: Unlike synthetic and man-made packing cubes, these eco-friendly alternatives made from Jute and Cotton are sustainable and reduce your environmental impact. By choosing these cubes, you contribute to a greener and more sustainable future.

Environmental and cost benefits 

Considering the convenience, organisation, and sustainability benefits, travel packing cubes are undoubtedly worth the investment. They not only enhance your travel experience but also align with your eco-conscious values.

These travel cubes are just divine!

These travel cubes are just divine! Thank you Kathleen for creating such a wonderful product. Kathleen’s service is outstanding, she asked if the cubes are a gift and if she should wrap them (I had to decline because I was thinking to order another pack for myself next year which I will definitely do now after seeing the cubes!) The cubes fabric feels sturdy, it seems they will last a lifetime. The zippers are well made too. Ordering again. Cheers from one happy traveler

Go to bag for travel & adventure!

I recently purchased the Wet Bag by Mika Creations for my 22 year old daughter, and she absolutely loves it! It has quickly become her go-to accessory for all things travel and adventure. She has raved about it and how fabulous it has been when she heads to the beach for her wet swimmers or a weekend getaway as a cosmetics bag. I love the environmental ethos of Mika Creations, and it is not only a beautiful looking product but it's super sturdy, durable and earth friendly! It was the perfect gift for her to accompany her on her adventures!

Fabulous gift for a dear friend

I bought this gift as a bikini wet bag for a friend who loves to travel, but who is also conscious of the environment.

It’s really tough finding great quality products that are also not manufactured with cheap, and non environmentally friendly materials. Needless to say I was delighted to have found this product.

I’m very happy with it, and I’m sure my friend will be too.

Thank you so much for your kind words! We are thrilled to hear that our wet bag is not only practical for your friend's travels, but also aligns with their eco-friendly values. It's always a pleasure to hear that our products are appreciated. Happy travels to your friend!
