An avid traveler with a penchant for style and design, designer Eram Siddiqui reached far outside of her comfort zone in 2011 and launched travel and lifestyle accessories brand, Hudson+Bleecker. The International Studies and Political Science major began her endeavor after a failed attempt to locate a proper shoe bag that would protect her beloved footwear collection during her travels. Struggling to find luxe travel accessories that were not only practical but also alluring, Eram observed that she was not alone in this struggle, and thus, she set out to create a collection of durable, high-quality travel accessories that are both functional and beautiful.
Based in New York City, Eram introduced Hudson+Bleecker in January of 2013 with a vivid five-piece collection. Following a wildly successful premier season, the brand, named for the city's famous and fashionable cross-streets, quickly expanded to incorporate over eight unique pieces including cosmetic bags, dopp kits, travel jewelry organizers, garment bags, shoe bags, travel toiletry bags, carryall tote bags and all-purpose travel pouch. The complete series of travel accessories is built to provide a solution for the stylish, well-traveled woman and encompasses designs to meet the needs of savvy and discerning jetsetters.
Each piece is developed with equal parts beauty and functionality. Eram brings each piece to life through the creation of custom bold textiles and prints inspired by exotic destinations, vibrant colors and rich textures. Hudson+Bleecker's signature patterns and prints have become synonymous with playful sophistication and modern luxury. The creation of custom textiles and use of luxe materials allows us to achieve a new perspective and aesthetic for travel accessories that mirrors the quality of handbags, a sentiment that has become the foundation of Hudson+Bleecker.
Hudson+Bleecker collections are available at Anthropologie, Birchbox, Free People, Shopbop, Stanley Korshak and over 150+ specialty retailers worldwide. Our collections have been featured in major online and print publications including: The Zoe Report, OK! Magazine, The Today Show, Rue Magazine, Apartment Therapy, Elle Magazine, People Magazine, Delta Sky Magazine, American Salon, The Knot + more.
We hope you enjoy traveling with Hudson+Bleecker!
