Matter Prints

& a few other items to explore with... 

Holidays are here & many of us are traveling to see loved ones or using up the money we saved all year to go on an adventure. I thought I would put a quick round up of some of my favorite items I bring along on all the journeys. 

Sideswept Dhoti + Trikora Pants, Matter Prints $129

Their clothes are made for traveling - I throw clothes in my suitcase and run out the door, so I need garments which don't wrinkle easy. Just throw on a soft tee with these pants and you are good to go!! Plus, they are a great weight making it easy to explore, and the print is pretty picture worthy :D The Trikora Pants are an edgier version of the original Indian dhoti with a take on modern asymmetry, and I love how the imbalance of the geometric print makes it so perfect. Truly a unique item in my closet! Woven in Pochampally and stitched in Delhi, this particular garment created 74 days of artisan employment! Bonus points.. these pants are unisex, and are dyed with azo-free dyes. The Trikora was inspired by the architectural Kangura print which was traditionally used as a border design for Rajasthani houses, and is a sign of protection and defense of loved ones. The up-facing three-sided shape of the Trikora symbolizes stability with the elements of earth and water. This is my second Matter Prints piece, and I wouldn't mind adding more to my collection for future trips ;) 

Rodica Backpack Tote, Sapahn $375

This guy is on my wishlist! I own a two bags from Sapahn & I'm obsessed. The quality is absolutely wonderful, and their mission is beautiful. To learn more about their artisans and craftsmanship click here

Alchemical Signs Travel Mug, LIVEN $105

Have you ever seen a mug so beautiful? It isn't your ordinary one, either. LIVEN has a patented tourmaline anion technology which helps improve the quality and taste of your drink. The tourmaline-crystal glaze acts as a natural filter helping to keep your water fresh {like a natural sweet spring}, while the double-wall heat insulation technology protects your hands from heat.

Alicia San Marcos Woven Camera StrapFair + Simple $40

Because your camera needs to look good, too. I've always been a fan of Alicia San Marco's textiles, and Fair + Simple is one of my favorite places for gift giving. Holiday side note--  Have that someone on your list who has everything? Fair + Simple allows you to purchase one card which can be redeemed on any conscious item in their beautifully curated collection - for both men AND women!!
