Taaluma Comm’ocean

November 05, 2021

Whale hello there! Buoy oh buoy are we excited for today...

Wondering what all the comm’ocean is about? 

We're stoked to announce that traveler edition totes are o-fish-ally back in stock on our site! 

(Traveler edition totes are made from fabric found by our awesome customers during their travels. When they travel to a new place, they find local fabric from that country, and we turn them into totes. For each tote sold, we give $10 back to them as a way of saying thanks. Cha-ching!)

Today’s fabrics were found by traveler Aaron John in Oceania (more Pacifically, the teeny-tiny countries of Tuvalu and the Marshall Islands). The patterns are so cray-sea gorgeous, you’ll have to sea them to believe it.

Shell we even attempt to describe how turtle-y awesome these fabrics are?

Thank you Aaron! These totes shorely won't disappoint! 

Here’s to sanding out from the crowd & to feeling good - because after all, it’s Friday.
