In Liberia, you know I’m Ghana be

January 03, 2020

Traveler Karen fell in love with the people and culture of West Africa while living in Ghana for several years as a teacher. Since then, she has traveled to several countries in West Africa to see new places, meet new people, and find new fabrics.

While on a trip to Liberia, Karen brought along her 2018 Ghana tote edition (sold out) and snapped some cool photos along the way.

From blessing the rains down in the African wetlands...

To water-falling in love with the countryside...

To experiencing tree-mendous peace and quiet in the wild...

To having a wheel good time meeting the locals...

Thanks Karen for showing off your tote in so many places! And thanks for going the extra yard to find this amazing fabric in Liberia...

Here’s to having A-frican great time and to feeling good—because after all, it’s Friday!
