While traveling to India, I visited several sewing projects in the red light district of Kolkata. These projects employ women who have found dignity and FREEDOM in their work. Inspired by these women, I brought some beautiful Indian saree fabric back home, I dusted off my sewing machine and began to sew again.
This time with a purpose.
I made my first SafariBlanket for a dear friend’s mother who was fighting cancer at the time. Seems everyone knows a story like this and it’s becoming all too common. I wanted to DO something for the people right in front of me struggling with this awful disease.
Combining my love for travel, culture, sewing, fabrics, I found for the first time some purpose behind all these loves and a reason to bring them together.
With every fabric bringing something wonderful and unique from their country and culture, you will find each SafariBlanket has a story of it’s own. From India to Kenya, Thailand to Peru, these SafariBlankets are one of a kind, handmade with LOVE and sewn with a purpose.
THANK YOU for being on this journey with me and may God bless you!
