Piña Coladas

April 24, 2020

Aloha bruddahs and sistas! This week, two awesome travelers share with us their trip to Oahu, Hawaii.

“Hawaii is one of the most beautiful and natural places in the world.”
- Evan Blum

From the peaceful palms,

to the wonderful waterfalls,

to the outstanding ocean,

...the sights of the island are simply breathtaking.

“My trip to Hawaii was full of adventure, culture, and food!”
- Priya Ghosh

From the fresh fruit and the green geckos,

to the zappy zip-lining,

to the vivid views,

...there’s so much to do and see while in Oahu, Hawaii. 

While there, Evan and Priya found something AMAZING!

We happened upon a fabric warehouse in Oahu and spent a few hours looking through all the patterns and choices. Unsurprisingly, the fabrics we found had that peaceful cultural feel weaved within it. The fabrics symbolize a local staple and represent the beautiful state of Hawaii. We’re happy to share with you something that makes us so happy.

Here’s to sipping Piña Coladas (even if it's on a Zoom virtual background) and getting caught in the rain & to feeling good—because after all, it’s Friday!

See ya lei-ter!

From being caught in the pyramid-dle of history in Cairo, to taking in the Israeli great views of Jerusalem, to resting on the Abu’ndant sands of Abu Dhabi.

September 11, 2020

It’s been 8 years since the idea for Taaluma Totes was born while on a life-changing trip to Uganda.

Since then, we’ve been able to fund 41 microloans for small business owners living in Uganda.

From Moses, a 24-year-old coffee farmer who used his loan to buy mulch.

Taaluma travelers have had a very gouda time in Holland over the years. 

From getting caught in a Holland-daze over the beauty of the land (and to becoming a big fan of the windmills), to discovering the magical world of Nether-Netherland, to having a wheely good time petal-ing around the city.
