The Great EscAPE

Feel Good Friday

Traveler Kayla ventured deep into the mountainous landscAPE of the Democratic Republic of Congo…

on a mission to gAPE into the eyes...

of a whole new culture.

Sitting amongst this family of mountain gorillas in the jungles of Virunga was an experience that became Kayla’s greatest escAPE.

  

Culture comes in all shAPEs and sizes and this was no different.

So she brought back a fabric that reminded her of that twinkle in the eyes of the natural world.

Here’s to life's great escAPEs and to feeling good—because after all, it's Friday!

-Jack & Alley, Co-Founders

PS.  Plus a few more fabric finds that together form a tAPEstry of cultures from around the globe...

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.
