Lisa Bishop (above right):

In 2007 Lisa, a soccer mom, recognized a large percentage of the soccer match attendees brought small dogs. Owning a small shih tzu, Pelé, with separation anxiety issues, Lisa wanted to take him along whenever possible - Pelé, however, was not as excited about being subjected to other dogs and small children. This caused Lisa to consider portable crates, but she quickly realized they were just another item to haul around. The only item that almost everyone brought to outdoor venues was the portable folding quad/bag chair (the "aha" moment), and it was then that the concept of a slipcover crate was born. Lifetime passions of inventing and sewing gave Lisa the skill-set to create working prototypes and bring the concept to life.

With three U.S. utility patents in place, Lisa and her sister, Carla Collette, formed LeisureEase, LLC and began the arduous process of locating and vetting manufacturers. The team received their first manufacturing run and launched Wrapsit™ slipcover crate in September 2017.

Carla Collette (above left):

A nature lover, educator, advocate and now a product designer, Carla has dedicated most of her thirty-year career to educating and inspiring people (primarily urban based) to conserve the natural world.  Her most fervent message is "get outdoors and discover nature." It is everywhere around us – even in the city at a little league baseball game, an outdoor concert in a park or even at a festival in city center. Take notice and enjoy!

However, Carla has also long recognized that communing with nature isn’t always that simple... especially in an urban setting. Usually, you take a chair and items that are in demand - purse, phone, water bottle, snacks etc. - all of which you have to keep track of and protect from damage or theft. After thirty years of dealing with this common dilemma, she longed to find an easy way to resolve the problem but without adding another item to her already full arms. So when her sister, Lisa, shared Wrapsit with her - she immediately recognized that Wrapsit is the answer everyone has been looking for. It is the easy convenient way to keep both pets AND personal belongings safe and secure while outdoors. This is when Carla had her own "aha" moment …this ingenious creation will help millions of people get outdoors and enjoy their leisure time more. How wonderful is that?
