Meet Teya “D-Globetrotter” Dalton, a world traveler turned entrepreneur who is the mastermind behind The Passport Hustle, a Black-owned line of accessories that elevate travel fashion and bring the adage “Black History is More Than a Month” into living color.
Travel has been a bit of a whirlwind lately. We’ve arrived in the new year and many of us survived the holiday travel season by the skin of our teeth. Even with pandemic restrictions being lifted across the globe, several challenges continue to test travelers’ resolve including inflation, natural disasters, war, and more.
Teya comments, “We now know that travelers won’t stop. And they won’t quit. Travelers are determined to see the world and celebrate loved ones in person, now more than ever. Thanks to my brand, The Passport Hustle, we can all say NO to boring luggage and travel essentials.”
Teya is a frequent traveler who often shares stories of her journey to visit 40 countries before age 40. She has traveled to and eaten in 43 countries across 6 continents and sends travelers around the world as a travel advisor and coach.
She is an immersive traveler who lights up when engaging in the stories of the people. She comments “Travel can enlighten you with just a glimpse into how locals live, use traditions to keep their culture alive, and erect the monuments we’re in awe of.” Lucky for us, Teya D-Globetrotter curates one of the best travel accessory stores on the market, showcasing culture inspired by international travelers and communities connected through the African Diaspora.
The Products – Show off your culture
Travelers often experience color & culture through amazing landscapes, architecture, textiles, food, and personal interactions. Most globetrotters will come across several instances of “black cultures” being co-opted by and for the profit of people in other communities. We seldom see products being created by us, for us, and/or to celebrate us.
The Passport Hustle offers BIPOC travelers and allies a unique opportunity to embrace the colors of the cultures that excite and inspire us. Now travelers can show off, show out, and magnify their unique self-expression. There’s no reason boring luggage options should thwart a traveler’s self-expression when The Passport Hustle offers a range of exotic travel essentials and accessories. Some items include Luggage Covers, memory foam Neck Pillows, Passport Wallets, Organizing Pouches, Carry- on Electronics, and Travel Sets.
The Passport Hustle recently launched its “Mud Cloth in Color” collection of travel products that are sure to agitate joy and fashion senses for all international travelers. This collection is inspired by hand-drawn mud cloths that are usually in earth tones. Marrying the mud cloth design element with vibrant colors gives travelers a way to keep ancestral cultures alive while celebrating their own vibrancy!
