The "Smoke that Thunders"

June 28, 2019

Feel Good Friday

Standing at a height of 108 meters (354 ft) and width of 1,708 meters (5,604 ft), “the Smoke that Thunders” or Victoria Falls is the world's largest sheet of falling water.  Indeed its “smoke” really does “thunder”…

Earning it a place as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.

“The falls are tall, long, loud…and absolutely breathtaking.” —Traveler Angie

With the help of a local taxi driver, Traveler Angie then set out on a journey to take the fabric market by storm.  Amongst the stacks and stacks of colorful fabrics, one fabric stole the thunder…a bold block-print that perfectly depicted Zimbabwe through its rumbling waterfalls and booming wildlife reserves.

And she brought back a few extra yards to share with you too.

Here’s to taking the world by storm and to feeling good—because after all, it's Friday!

-Jack & Alley, Co-Founders

PS.  Plus we are rolling out a few more fabric finds from other travelers...

Traveler Tim recently visited one of his favorite places in the world, a small village near Bamako, Mali.

Back in 2017, Tim helped open a middle school with a foundation called Mali Rising, which focuses on building schools in remote areas to spread education to the youth.

He has traveled back multiple times to visit the school (which was named in honor of him) and recently visited again to attend the wedding of his best friend's daughter.

The stories and pictures that Tim shared with us were INCREDIBLE..and they reminded us of our favorite things to do while traveling.
