Hi friends, we're Trelle & Co.
We value thoughtful details and believe that being active makes you beautiful. We love that our style is synonymous with happiness. We embrace an optimistic and inclusive spirit which we channel into the bags we design. As a female-owned business, we celebrate women who are confident and happy, because we truly believe that confident, happy people can change the world!
It started with the desire to make what we couldn’t find…luxurious bags that complement the active woman’s wardrobe. Co-founders Elise and Nancy knew intimately of the void in the pickleball bag world and understood the desire for beautiful, functional pieces that support an active and fun lifestyle.
We believe in living the best life you can and enjoying the fullness of the life around you. That includes what bag you carry, how you speak and the way you love.
While we aim to create beautiful products we also prioritize ethical practices and mindful choices to help lower the impact our product has on our planet.
If there were a textbook definition of “entering as strangers and leaving as friends,” our relationship would be it. It all started normally enough, with an introduction at a party — but new friends don’t typically agree to a joint family spring break trip a week into knowing each other! What could’ve been two families coexisting in the same place (or worse, a total disaster!) was the beginning of one of those rarified friendships that only a few are lucky enough to experience.
That first spring break, we were two giddy, inseparable-but-still-distinct families; over the years — and on many subsequent vacations — those two distinct families have fused into one. From celebrating holidays and milestones to seeing each other through life’s challenges and curve balls, enjoying Sunday dinners, to experiencing heartfelt laughter on the pickleball court, we share all of life’s moments together — and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
Our friendship has made us true believers in the power of serendipity, and pickleball is just one of those blessings that happened by chance. When Covid canceled a planned trip, we looked for some closer-to-home fun on the pickleball courts, and in true Elise/Nancy fashion, a whim turned into an obsession: we couldn’t get enough of this wonderful sport! Now we participate in leagues and tournaments, and love every minute of it. Perhaps even more than playing, we love that pickleball is such a potpourri people — all ages, backgrounds, and athletic abilities coming together around the pure joy they feel on the courts.
Pickleball has become a happy place and a community, and we’re excited for Trelle to bring even more whimsy and style to something already filled with such delight.
