Feel Good Friday

There is something Faso’nating about being in a completely new environment.

You are given a blank slate…

to build on…

and the ability to create connections.

As a Peace Corps volunteer at a school in Burkina Faso, Victor built the strongest level of connection with a new community…inheriting a local family, life-long friends and a feeling of home 5,637 miles away from his hometown of St. Louis, Missouri.  So he wanted to extend those connections to you too. With the same fabric worn by his host-mom of Leo, Burkina Faso…

Victor created a line of Burkina Faso totes…

Paying It Forward

January 22, 2021

Wikipedia (ahem, my favorite source) defines “pay it forward” as “an expression for describing the beneficiary of a good deed repaying the kindness to others instead of to the original benefactor.”

In other words, when someone does something nice for you, you do something nice for someone else, sparking an awesome chain reaction of kindness :)

Merry Christmas from Taaluma

December 25, 2020

Season’s greetings to you and your family!

We hope you have a great thyme this season doing your favorite holiday things: from cumin together with your family, to wearing warm and comfy cloves, to chili-ing out and taking some time off to rest. Oh and have fun opening presents too, just remember that “it is always pepper to give than to receive.”

From all of us at Taaluma, we wish you a rose-merry Christmas and a dill-lightful New Year!
