When it comes to making totes, there’s no such thing as too much TLC. We like to think of every stitch as a Sistine Chapel. And it’s about time we introduce the Dream Team who makes these travel-ready totes!
“Alvin Scissorhands”. Alvin gets the Taaluma party started by cutting fresh-from-the-market fabric into the 20+ pieces that make up a tote.
“Double Stitch Dorothy”. Dorothy is a machine when it comes to stitching funky fabrics to pillow-like padding. She adds the padding that makes your tote comfy enough for trips to Machu Picchu & back.
“Jazz Hands Judy”. You should see the moves Judy pulls on a sewing machine. She stitches together the final pieces of this jigsaw puzzle...and she does it in style.
“Mark-Master Michael”. Michael is a black belt in the mark-tial arts. He marks the spot for each hole, snap & button making sure they’re all placed on your tote in perfect harmony.
Together with the rest of the team, they’ve gone from making 50 totes per week to now making 700 per week. And somehow, the more they make, the more TLC they manage to pour into them.
So here’s to never having too much TLC, and to feeling good—because after all it’s Friday!
-Jack & Alley, Co-Founders
It’s Feel Good Friday and we got some good news for ya! So which do you want first… the good news… or more good news?
Good news: We’re so excited to announce that we’ve been given the green light to start making totes again! (Back in April, we were deemed non-essential so we had to stop tote production due to the Governor’s COVID orders).
More good news: For the past 3 months, we turned our attention to making face masks for our customers and donating face masks to hospital workers (don't worry, we didn’t go into hibernation mode. If anything, we got busier producing all these face masks).
Tis the sea-sun as summer is officially here! We’re feeling pretty shore that it’s going to be a great summer! Here’s to shell-abrating good times with great people..
