The "sari"…Five+ yards of brightly colored fabric wrapped around a woman’s waist and draped over her shoulder. Even in the chaotic crowds of India’s modern cities, women in saris spread color, tradition and a sense of sari'nity...
The sari is a symbol of grace and cultural pride and is worn both in everyday life and on special occasions. Sisters Priya & Kamalini traveled from the US to Kolkata to be part of their cousin’s Bengali wedding. Amongst the energy and excitement of the celebration, they found a piece of that sari’nity when wearing this traditional attire too.
So they ventured to find the source of the saris…
in hopes of continuing to drape this fabric over their shoulders once they returned home.
Here’s to finding your sari’nity and to feeling good—because after all, it's Friday!
-Jack & Alley, Co-Founders
PS. Plus a few more sari'nading fabrics found by other travelers around the globe...
The Middle East is known for its ancient history, vast deserts, and religious roots.
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.
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.
