In our constant search for the perfect gift, we stumbled upon this amazing brand. Inspired by travel, adventure and the colors of the world, Legend of Lido pouches are our favorite go to gifts. 

Legend of Lido was launched by west coast native, Krista Lissner and east coast native, Benita Litt.  Beginning with the idea of creating the perfect travel pouch, Legend of Lido has since evolved into a collection of travel-inspired carryalls for everyday use.  Every bag is designed from an exotic, one-of-a-kind print inspired by the world's vibrant colors and whimsical essence.  They are perfectly designed to mix and match with one another and come in a variety of sizes. 

We sat down with Legend of Lido founders, Krista and Benita to find out what how they launched her brand, the best business advice they've ever been given and their favorite brands.
