Kenyan Pride

August 23, 2019

Feel Good Friday

Traveler Linda ventured deep into the grasslands of Kenya with the mane goal of seeing the “Big Five” with her own two eyes. She found herself looking high and buffalo in search of an elephant, buffalo, leopard, lion and rhino.

And one by one...

she spotted these majestic animals lion amongst the Kenyan savannah.

 

"Once I saw the "Big Five" fabric, I knew this was the one to choose. The animal pictures are perfect; and I was told this fabric could be used to make everything from curtains to clothing, and now, backpacks! To all buyers, I wish you "safari njema" aka "safe travels" wherever your travels may take you." —Traveler Linda Y.

Traveler Linda brought back fabric horning in on Kenya’s wildlife for you to get to rhino this wild country too…

Here’s to carrying a piece of Kenya with pride and to feeling good—because after all, it’s Friday!

PS.  It never herds to add a few new African fabric finds to the Taaluma collection...

"During our trip to Laos, we took a long river trip up the Mekong river. I wanted to visit a remote elephant sanctuary where the elephants are not required to perform heavy labor and their natural habitat is protected. The elephants in this sanctuary are handled by people called Mahouts. When only a small boy, a Mahout is paired with a baby elephant, and they are bonded for life.The Mahout are a people and a way of life that is rapidly disappearing. It was truly special to meet them.”
