Name of the Game

June 05, 2020

Traveler Martini works for a nonprofit focused on human and environmental health in Indonesian Borneo. She also grew up in Indonesia, so whenever she returns for a work trip, she makes sure to visit her family and relive her childhood.

Her favorite part of traveling is “meeting people and getting a glimpse into their everyday lives (which is usually so similar and yet so different to mine)” - Martini Morris

One thing that many countries have in common is the games kids play. Yep, did you know that most popular childhood games are universal? They may be called something different somewhere else, but the games are pretty much the same. So whether in the United States or in Indonesia, here’s to...

playing Paddy-cake in a rice field,

Rock, Paper, Scissors on a mountain,

Monkey in the Middle in a jungle,

Follow the Leader on a beach,

Marco Polo in water,

and Hide & Seek in a store.

Thanks for the awesome fabric find Martini!

Here’s to being playful in childhood and to staying playful in adulthood & to feeling good—because after all, it’s Friday!

It’s Feel Good Friday and we got some good news for ya! So which do you want first… the good news… or more good news?

Good news: We’re so excited to announce that we’ve been given the green light to start making totes again! (Back in April, we were deemed non-essential so we had to stop tote production due to the Governor’s COVID orders). 

More good news: For the past 3 months, we turned our attention to making face masks for our customers and donating face masks to hospital workers (don't worry, we didn’t go into hibernation mode. If anything, we got busier producing all these face masks).

From Tel Aviv, to the Dead Sea, to the Sea of Galilee, to the Negev, to the streets of Jerusalem.
