Traveler Sandie and her daughter traveled to the Netherlands for some mother-daughter time exploring a new culture. Between its flower-filled streets...
flavorful food and the friendliest of people, they found a stroopwafel’ly colorful place rich in culture.
“We searched many fabric stores in every section of Amsterdam (and other cities). We found the perfect representation of the Netherlands in this fabric. It was purchased in a great place in the most famous market of Amsterdam: Albert Cuyp Market. The colors represent the colors of the beautiful homes, businesses, churches, flowers and of course the paintings of Van Gogh and Vermeer to name a few. The colorful architecture in their country. The beautiful flowers in the markets and fields, the colorful trees and the most beautiful butterflies along with the arches representing gorgeous sunrises and sunsets. The flowers and colorful trees are also seen in the beautiful paintings. You see these patterns repeated everywhere in the streets, bridges, windows and museums. Oh what a wonderful trip, just thinking about it aahhhh!” —Traveler Sandie
The Netherlands truly left them at a speculaas for words.
And Traveler Sandie wanted to keep this bitterballen rolling, so she brought back fabric to create the first ever Netherlands Tote to share with you too…
Here’s to life’s adventures that leave you at a speculaas for words and to feeling gouda—because after all, it's Friday!
-Jack & Alley, Co-Founders
PS. And a few more Traveler Edition Totes celebrating colorful adventures of their own...

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).
Tis the sea-sun as summer is officially here! We’re feeling pretty shore that it’s going to be a great summer! Here’s to shell-abrating good times with great people..
