Shay Mitchell, known for her role in the hit TV show "Pretty Little Liars," launched her travel brand, Beis, in 2018. Since then, the brand has gained a significant following for its stylish and functional travel accessories. Beis's products include luggage, backpacks, cosmetic bags, and more, all designed with the needs of modern travelers in mind. Mitchell's celebrity status has undoubtedly helped the brand's popularity, but the quality and design of Beis's products are what truly sets it apart. Although the brand has been around for a few years, they have done a phenomenal job leveraging Tik Tok to become a hit brand among Gen Z. In 2023, we can expect Beis to continue to grow and innovate, as the brand expands its product line and continues to reach valuable new audiences.
