Nothing says “exploring the streets of Asia” like the tuk-tuk...the open air rickshaw where local life passes by as you soak up the sounds and smells of a new place.
While on the back of a tuk-tuk, Traveler Tim tuk notice of an en’tire’ly new side of Cambodia…
"The everyday clothing for rural women is a jacket and loose fitting pants all made from the same material.
“I had been told the Olympic Market in Phnom Penh was THE place to find Cambodian fabrics. It took some finding, but on the second floor I spotted bolts of fabric and knew I had arrived. Mrs. Tom was happy to pull out bolt after bolt.
“Her teenage son then carried the heavy parcel down to my waiting tuk-tuk and I was off to the airport, my mission accomplished.” -Traveler Tim
Traveler Tim tuk one look at this fabric and felt it perfectly represented those wheel-life moments exploring Cambodia. So he tuk it upon himself to send it into our team to be turned into the first ever Cambodia Tote…
Here’s to connecting with the wheel world and to feeling good—because after all, it’s Friday!

PS. Plus a handmade Ghanaian batik fabric ready for the road ahead...

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..
