Sherpa bags have their roots in their airline industry, as the company’s founder Gayle Martz worked as a flight stewardess for more than 20 years. When she searched unsuccessfully find a carrier to fly her Lhasa Apso named Sherpa, Martz designed one and lobbied the airlines to allow pets on board in the cabin. The original Sherpa bag was the first pet carrier ever to be recognized by airlines and Martz is accredited for changing the airline industry to allow pets to travel in style.
