Feel Good Friday

Madras fabric is known throughout the Caribbean for its plaid pattern & bright coastal colors. During national celebrations, Antigua & Barbuda are all madras’ed up in a red, gold and green madras fabric as the main part of their national dress.

From the wise ones...

to the wild ones...

the Antiguan people raise their flag to this red, green and gold.

Here’s to to m’adrasing a whole new culture and to feeling good—because after all, it's Friday!
