A few of our favorite things

January 24, 2020

Traveler Tim recently visited one of his favorite places in the world, a small village near Bamako, Mali.

Back in 2017, Tim helped open a middle school with a foundation called Mali Rising, which focuses on building schools in remote areas to spread education to the youth.

He has traveled back multiple times to visit the school (which was named in honor of him) and recently visited again to attend the wedding of his best friend's daughter.

The stories and pictures that Tim shared with us were INCREDIBLE..and they reminded us of our favorite things to do while traveling.

From making a positive impact wherever you go

to always learning something new

to participating in the country's pastimes (go Sebela Gazelles!)

to catching wild rides in whatever way you can

​to making new friends along the way

to snacking on something new

to taking precious naps for much needed rest

to witnessing love in so many different languages

to finding the wackiest fabrics the world has to offer.

Thank you Tim for this awesome fabric find!

Here’s to all the precious moments that traveling brings & to feeling good—because after all, it’s Friday!

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).
