Fiona Parfrey started designing and producing backpacks after hearing the same complaints from women during a five-month trip that took in the Philippines, Sri Lanka, Nepal and Kenya.

The 28-year-old from Blackpool, Co Cork began work on her new venture, Sundrift, as soon as she returned home.

“I was hearing the same complaint over and over again from female backpackers while I was travelling,” she said.
