Meet the Maker

August 08, 2014

We came across a mid-week Feel Good surprise when checking in with our manufacturing team this week.

Dorothy, a member of the Taaluma-Team since day 1, is legally blind and legally awesome. She always greets you with a high five, a hug and a laugh that's contagious!  With each visit, Dorothy takes on a new piece of the 62-piece-puzzle of building a Taaluma Tote.

After mastering the marking and cutting, she now stitches each panel together to build the foundation of EVERY tote... And she does it with a smile from ear to ear! 

So here's to Dorothy, to infectious optimism and to feeling good-- 'cause after all, it's Friday!
