New York native, Elizabeth Suda, got the “travel bug” in college while studying abroad at Oxford University. She seized every opportunity to travel through Europe while abroad. After graduating from Williams College, she landed a job in the fashion industry at Coach.

"Landing back in [New York City] was great if I wasn’t going to travel," Suda remembers.

While working in the Merchandising Department at Coach, she learned the various aspects of the fashion industry from designers, to product developers, to retail buyers. She noticed that many of their products tags had the same inscription: “MADE IN INDIA” or “MADE IN CHINA.” Curious by nature, she wanted to delve deeper to discover where the products she worked with daily originated.
