Feel Good Friday

Traveler Woody’s favorite thing about traveling is disconnecting from the online world and reconnecting with the tangible one. This time, his journey began in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

Between road trips listening to Ethio-jazz and meals of injera with new friends, he spent his days wandering Ababa’out Ethiopia learning about this entirely unique place.

He jumped right in to local traditions...

sought out hidden history…

and connected with some welcoming souls.

To keep a piece of Ethiopia with him after returning home to his everyday life, he brought back fabric…

and created this new Addis’tion to the Taaluma collection.

Here’s to exploring Addis’tant place and to feeling good—because after all, it's Friday!

Plus a few more fabrics brought back by travelers who wandered out and Ababa’out in the world too...
