The November catalog is here, so check those mailboxes. You can view it online and be sure to check out the “behind the scenes” video from our trip to India.
Our assistant creative director wrote a little about the inspiration our designers found in Tibet and their experience with the catalog…
“After our designers’ visit to tibet last year, they returned with stories of how warm and accepting the people were…doub and maryellen were even taken into a shop and dressed to the nines in native garb as a crowd of onlookers watched. We wanted to share with our fp community the impact this culture had on those 2 designers. Their dress code may not be intentional, but we found it so beautiful and in its genuinity, we hoped to express those sincerest of ideals in our book. And therefore travelled to a tibetan village in india, and while there, we met and made many friends who were just willing to share their lives and experiences with us for a few days.
There’s probably more I could and should convey, but it was so truly magical for myself and our team. Funnily enough, I was reading through the journal I kept there, and came across the story of the family who made us butter tea for the first time…”Experiences like this make my life worthwhile, and restore validity in humanity.
