The Story of a Brand

Jan 29, 2021

In the first part of this Feature, we interview Dan Demsky, co-Founder of Unbound Merino. Unbound Merino is a versatile, high performance & sustainable clothing line for men and women made from Merino wool.

Merino wool comes from the merino sheep in Australia. The secret in “nature’s miracle fabric” is that it holds the capabilities to insulate heat when it’s cold and breathe comfortably when it’s warm.

It’s also naturally antibacterial and moisture-wicking, which means less washing with clothes that stay dry, clean, and fresh. This makes it the perfect material to bring in your carry on to maximize your travel wardrobe or wear for everyday use.

Listen in as we talk to co-founder Dan Demsky, as he tells us how he turned merino wool into a travel apparel brand.

In part 1, Dan discusses Dan’s mentor experience; The Hundred-Foot Overview of Unbound Merino; Nature’s miracle fabric; How merino wool works; Crowdfunding your project; Utilizing the next travel hack; and much more.
