Traveler Jeff went to Tanzania as part of a film crew to document a team of philanthropists climbing Africa's tallest mountain, Mt. Kilimanjaro. The team was assembled by NFL player Chris Long after visiting Tanzania in 2008 and being blown away by the incredible country and its people. So he put together a team… from military veterans to veterinarians to fellow NFL athletes…and in spite of their different backgrounds they all came together to s’peak the same language of service.
With their five day trek,
inspired by the miles that many local families currently trek to access clean water,
the team ascended Mt. Kilimanjaro at 19,341 ft above sea level and raised money to bring clean water a little closer to those communities in Tanzania.
With footage of the local communities and the unforgettable trek that they inspired, traveler Jeff will summit all up in a documentary to share the story with people back home. And in the meantime, he wanted to celebrate their mount’age of traditional fabrics...
by bringing a piece to you too.
Here’s to coming together to s’peak the same language and to feeling good—because after all, it's Friday!
-Jack & Alley, Co-Founders
PS. Plus a few more fabric finds from other travelers whose experiences in East Africa peak'ed their interest too...
