Connecting Cultures

August 14, 2013

Check out our Indonesian buddy rockin’ the Giddy Ghana tote, in Blacksburg VA.  That’s three different countries, on three different continents, with three completely different cultures, all wrapped in one! That’s some REAL hump day hoopla :)

We aren’t the only ones out there connecting cultures.  Check out this short (but SO sweet) video...

 

Taaluma... Is it one A and two L’s?  Or are there two A’s and one L??  Even though the spelling is ridiculous, the message is simple.  What DOES ‘taaluma’ mean?  Culture.  And that’s exactly what we are out to connect.  Taaluma Totes is on a trek to connect cultures around the world one tote at a time!

Happy Hump Day!
