Top Knotch Gear
St. Petersburg, Florida, USA
Top Knotch Gear was launched in August, 2010. It is an online store that specializes in hand-knotted adventure gear made of parachute, utility and hemp cords. Constructed for the unexpected, TKG was debuted with the idea that profit from the company's sales will fund our year-long circumnavigation of the globe. The trip will begin (ideally) in 2013, will span 5 continents and include visits to over 40 countries. This gap-year will consist of hostel hopping, community volunteering, teaching English, snorkeling, climbing mountains and visiting historical and sacred sites. It is a time for us to see and explore the world, interact with new cultures, learn new languages and engage in once-in-a-lifetime adventures that can only be had when we step outside of our comfort zones. Each purchase made through TKG is put away in our 'trip jar' and left untouched so that 100% of the profits will go to support a unique excursion.
