The hunt began in the small alleys of the Ho Chi Minh fabric market.
Through a combination of broken English and body language, we had decided on our fabric.
Feeling Good about our Vietnamese fabric, we thought we’d be on our way, but then a man with a basket of mysterious food showed up... We realized our Vietnamese fabric hunt was far from over!
It started with a banana leaf pyramid of rice noodle, with minced pork, quail egg, and salt and pepper. It was followed by coffee, tea, and exchanging pictures of family. Before we knew it, 2 hours had passed and with arms full of fabric we said our Cám ơn's and good-byes!
Here’s to our Taaluma fabric friends around the world and Feeling Good, because after all it’s Friday!
Agriculture is the backbone of Myanmar’s economy.
There are lots of farmers in Myanmar who work hard to support themselves, their families, and their villages with jobs and food.
However, many banks don’t offer capital to farmers for them to purchase enough seeds, equipment, or animals to run their farms efficiently. Due to this, farm productivity in Myanmar is one of the lowest in all of Asia.
