HimalYAYas, a new Nepal tote has arrived!
In 2018, Traveler Taylor moved to Chitwan, Nepal.
While living in Nepal, Taylor has gathered some awesome fabrics for us to turn into totes. Believe it or not, this is Taylor’s ninth Nepal tote...and it may just be the best one yet! Click the image or button below to see a special message from Taylor. #thinkglobalactlocal
Taylor’s totes have done a whole lot of good by providing microloans to some very awesome Nepalis.
From Ramita, who used her loan to grow her mushroom farming business. Fun fact about Ramita: She started her business when she was 20 years old!
To Mira, who runs a pasal (a small grocery store) in the Kathmandu Valley. She used her loan to buy more inventory and have more products to sell.
To Kusum, who used her loan to buy raw materials for her shoe making business.
Here’s to a nice Friday nap and getting some much needed Eve-rest & to feeling good—because after all, it’s Friday!

While visiting Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia, Lucy went fabric hunting at the famous Pasar Seni, which translates to ‘Central Market.’
Her favorite part of the market was the original tiles that decorate the floor. She loved the beautiful and detailed design that speaks of a time long ago.
