Provence, in the southern Mediterranean region of France, sees over 300 days of sunshine per year. The local way of life has been guided by the sun and continues to radiate in all its glory…
The region is beaming with fields of sun-inspired flowers...
And the Provencal heritage celebrates the souleiado (a symbol meaning “the sun’s rays shining through a cloud after the rain”).
This un’SUN’g hero has formed the radiant Provencal culture and traveler Debbie wanted to shine some light on it too…
"I just love the beautiful shades of blue contrasted with creamy white in this fabric purchased at the Saturday market in Apt from a "tissu" (the French word for "fabric") vendor. The panels of sunflowers, olive branches and souleiados reflect images seen all over Provence. The countryside is full of fields of sunflowers and lavender, and olive trees are everywhere.”
Here’s to this un'SUN'g hero and to feeling good—because after all, it's Friday!

PS. Plus a few more fabrics from other sun-kissed countries around the world...

Canada is full of stunning beauty.
From witnessing the Niagara Falls (even if people say it's mainstream), to stopping in your tracks because the views are snow majestic, to taking a step (Que)bec in time while walking the old cobblestone streets.
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).
