The bar-tailed godwit is stout, mottled in a dull grey-brown, and unassuming.

It’s certainly no swan.

Yet it is the boldest animal we know. The bird flies 7,000 miles in 8 days, from Alaska to New Zealand, without a single pause.

That’s no water, no sleep and no rest.

What a rock star.

This bird’s boundless journey inspired us to create Bartaile:

Bold bags, luggage and travel accessoriesfor those going places.

Thank you, bird.
