Lao’ttery Jackpot

April 09, 2021

"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.”

From going Lao’ut and about in the city,

to exploring the Lao’utdoors along the Mekong River, 

to enjoying the Lao’utpouring of love at the protected elephant sanctuaries,

Traveler Aaron John was Lao’utspoken about how great his trip went. 

And to make it even better, he ran across locals making some Lao’wesome fabric!

Aaron picked out 2 amazing fabrics and sent them to us to turn into totes. Score!

Thanks Aaron, it feels like we hit the jackpot in the Lao’ttery!

Here’s to giving it your all no matter what the Lao’utcome & to feeling good - because after all, it’s Friday.
