Market days

While we often share photos from the fabric market with you, the market is in fact much more than just fabric! Nestled in the heart of Dar es Salaam, this many-blocks-wide shopping bonanza is filled with just about everything that you can imagine!

As you can imagine, we were so excited to see this stunning woman who clearly loves this print as much as we do!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fruits and veg, anyone? We always stock up on the local garlic as well as whatever is in season--this month, it's tamarind time!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Vendors often pre-peel oranges so they're easy to eat on the go! The market is filled with bicycles and carts topped with everything from citrus to jackfruit!

#somanywaystowearit

We're super excited about our new men's fit shirts, and while we do think that they are pretty perfect for the gents, we also think that they're pretty perfect for everyone! We asked our teams in NY and SF to style the shirt because who doesn't love some #outfitinspo? :)

WHAT WE'RE LISTENING TO // MANGA by Mayra Andrade

This Cape Verdean singer is my newest obsession! Her beats are strong, her sound is sweet, and whenever I've got this in my headphones, I find myself drifting off (admittedly not a tough achievement, but still).

Two years on Bleecker!

Can you believe it's already been two years since we opened on Bleecker Street? We certainly can't! As some of you may remember, we started out as a pop-up, hoping that we'd be able to keep the doors open for a few months, and two years later, we're amazed and truly grateful that all of you continue to come and hang out with us!! We're also really proud of the women who have joined our team over the last few years and grown with us. 

You ALL have helped us to make this house a home, so thank you for being part of our family!
