Aaron the Explorer

February 28, 2020

There have been many famous explorers in the history of mankind (other than Dora and the internet browser of course).

Marco Polo, Lewis and Clark, Neil Armstrong, and many other explorers earned their way into our history books.

In our age of Google Maps and satellite imagery, exploration is a little different. But that doesn’t discourage Aaron John from going to some of the least known places where few travelers ever go.

From making the uncomfortable trek to the ship-breaking yards in Chittagong, Bangladesh,

to getting off the beaten path in the valleys of northern Laos,

to flying to the isolated country of Nauru (one of the hardest countries to visit),

and to the other places where Aaron has explored: Tuvalu (the least-visited country in the world), Palau, the Marshall Islands, and lots more.

Shoutout to Aaron for being a modern explorer and for all his contributions to Taaluma Totes since the very beginning. Thanks for always finding fabric for us on your explorations (and for this awesome find in Sri Lanka)!

Here’s to finding your inner explorer… and to feeling good — because after all, it’s Friday!

HimalYAYas, a new Nepal tote has arrived!

In 2018, Traveler Taylor moved to Chitwan, Nepal.

While living in Nepal, Taylor has gathered some awesome fabrics for us to turn into totes. Believe it or not, this is Taylor’s ninth Nepal tote...and it may just be the best one yet! Click the image or button below to see a special message from Taylor. #thinkglobalactlocal

Australia is Aussie-some!

From en’joey-ing the unique wildlife, to appreciating the koala-ty vegetation, to pond’ering the remoteness of the Outback.

India is a land full of ancient history, diverse culture, and breathtaking geography.

From taking in the Indus-scribable views, to seeing what the Taj of the town is all about, to realizing that this is as good is it Ghats.
