“I went to Rwanda as part of a study abroad program through Virginia Tech. We worked with various NGOs across the country, teaching English and math skills. I personally worked with OPDE. OPDE workes to protect and develop children in Rwanda."
- Traveler Farrell Strueber
While in Rwanda, Farrel found some free time to R’wander about in the countryside. In his own words, he had “never seen anywhere so green and lush in [his] entire life.”
"The design and vibrant colors immediately caught my eye while I was exploring the local market. The design is local to Rwanda and the pattern is very common on fabrics offered by merchants and tailors.”
Thanks for the Rwa’some fabric find Farrell!
Here’s to R’wandering around in someplace new & 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.
