At a Speculaas for Words

Feel Good Friday

Traveler Sandie and her daughter traveled to the Netherlands for some mother-daughter time exploring a new culture. Between its flower-filled streets...

eye-catching artwork...

flavorful food and the friendliest of people, they found a stroopwafel’ly colorful place rich in culture.

 

“We searched many fabric stores in every section of Amsterdam (and other cities). We found the perfect representation of the Netherlands in this fabric.  It was purchased in a great place in the most famous market of Amsterdam:  Albert Cuyp Market. The colors represent the colors of the beautiful homes, businesses, churches, flowers and of course the paintings of Van Gogh and Vermeer to name a few.  The colorful architecture in their country.  The beautiful flowers in the markets and fields, the colorful trees and the most beautiful butterflies along with the arches representing gorgeous sunrises and sunsets.  The flowers and colorful trees are also seen in the beautiful paintings. You see these patterns repeated everywhere in the streets, bridges,  windows and museums.  Oh what a wonderful trip, just thinking about it aahhhh!” —Traveler Sandie

The Netherlands truly left them at a speculaas for words.

And Traveler Sandie wanted to keep this bitterballen rolling, so she brought back fabric to create the first ever Netherlands Tote to share with you too…

Here’s to life’s adventures that leave you at a speculaas for words and to feeling gouda—because after all, it's Friday!

-Jack & Alley, Co-Founders

PS. And a few more Traveler Edition Totes celebrating colorful adventures of their own...
