Sinterklaas is Coming to Town…

Feel Good Friday

"Amsterdam, with its arched canals and unique roofline is a city like no other."

"It has the energy and hustle of New York, but with a certain “old world” fairytale quality. Tall and slender, with infinite windows, its waterfront homes and businesses are a study in geometric shapes."

 

"That is why, when I saw this fabric featuring those very homes, I knew I had to have it.  With bolt in arms, we headed back toward the Metro, but couldn’t leave without first buying a freshly made stroopwafel, warm with sticky melting caramel. Checking the fabric and stroopwafel off my bucket list we boarded the tram!" —Traveler Cathy Hoodak

  

Thanks to Traveler Cathy and her sister making the gouda list this year, Sinterklaas is coming to town…

With fabric from this majestic Nether-Nether land.

Here’s to ho ho ho’ping for a magical holiday season ahead of you and to feeling good—because after all, it's Friday!

-Jack & Alley, Co-Founders

PS. To give our thanks this holiday season, we are micro loaning 100% of profits this Black Friday—connecting with more farmers and small business owners around the globe!

There are 4 types of Hmong people that live in this area. The Red Hmong, Black Hmong, Green Hmong and the Flower Hmong tribes. We visited a very remote region that is dominated by the Flower Hmong people and we explored the Bac Ha market which is rarely seen by outsiders.
