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...
