Kenyan Pride

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!

-Jack & Alley, Co-Founders

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

A Rwanda'ring Hero

Kigali is a beautiful hilly city, quite green and very clean. People are super nice and eager to tell you about their history, including the genocide. Rwanda does not allow plastic bags, so, unlike other African countries, there is no plastic flying around or laying on the streets.
