HÄNGAR Travel is a startup based in Toronto, Canada. The company was formed in 2017 to develop a unique portable travel footrest for the everyday traveller.

The idea of the footrest was born in May 2016 on a long-haul flight, where our co-founder was struggling to get comfortable in economy class.

Since then HÄNGAR has evolved significantly. We have gone through multiple iterations and tested many prototypes to create a travel product that is functional, comfortable and aesthetic.

The footrest design is inspired by Scandinavian simplicity and practicality, with the vision of creating a product that is functional without compromising style. We have created a sleek travel footrest that travellers can easily take with them on any journey to increase their travel comfort.

In order to establish funding for the first production run, HÄNGAR was launched on the crowdfunding platform Kickstarter in December 2017.
