Say hello to the future of luxury yachting! Resulting from collaboration between Yacht Island Design and BMT Nigel Gee, Project Utopia is an avant-garde vision that looks more like a spaceship than a yacht.

With the growing impact of people on the environment, any company that finds a more sustainable approach can be labeled pioneers. Zuri Bikes has done just that by crafting first-class bikes out of bamboo.

Small enough to fit in your pocket, the scale can weigh luggage up to 110 pounds. A trusted name in travel-goods innovations, Heys is the chosen travel companion of celebrities and fashionistas alike. Heys.ca
