Some travel in search of new cultures, others in search of unique experiences, and others in search of fertile grasslands. Shepherds are Leba’nonstop travelers who live a life of wandering…
Their journey revolves around an extensive knowledge of seasonal weather patterns and a deep understanding of land down to its Bei’roots. Their destinations are lands filled with fertile grass to feed their herd. The livestock then provide meat, milk and hides for the shepherd to use and trade.
Fayez is a 21 year old shepherd from Ain, Lebanon. He is looking for a microloan to buy more sheep to expand the size of his herd.
Traveler Tim, being a wanderer himself (158 countries and counting!), brought back this Lebanese fabric find...
which will support Fayez and his life of Leba’nonstop wandering too.
Here’s to these Leba’nonstop wanderers and to feeling good—because after all it’s Friday!

PS. Plus a f’ewe more fabric finds from a herd of other travelers wandering the globe...

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..
