All About Alpaca Wool

This holiday season, we’re introducing sweater knits in the softest Alpaca-blends crafted in Peru. Have you ever heard of Alpacas? Alpacas are a South American camelid, the same species as a llama. Alpacas were raised by the Incas in South America more than 6,000 years ago, and clothing made from their hair was so special, it was worn by only Incan royalty. To this day, alpaca wool is a high quality wool used to make super cozy clothing around the world. We feel lucky to be able to share these special styles with you!

Behind the Design: Perito Moreno Photoreal Dress

Perito Moreno Photoreal Dress

We know you love our prints and patterns and look forward to seeing the new ones roll out with each destination. One of our most exciting prints in our winter collection is the print on our Perito Moreno Photoreal Dress. The photoreal print on our dress is created from our designer’s actual photos snapped on their trip through the Perito Moreno Glacier located in the Los Glaciares National Park in Santa Cruz, Argentina. The glacier is a 97 square mile ice formation and one of three continuously growing glaciers in Patagonia. Its immense size and colors are a sight to be seen!

Our Newest Graphic Tees Inspired By Patagonia

15NOV_W_BB03_038

Our newest baby boy graphic tee styles are inspired by the animals and landscapes we saw on our trip to the Southern most tip of South America. We took a road trip through the Andes mountains and ended in Patagonia, a land of magnificent views and glaciers. We saw guanacos (the cousin of the llama), condors, beautiful sunsets and glaciers galore. We came back so inspired by all we had seen and we think it really plays out in our graphics. Keep reading to learn more about the inspiration behind our adorably cool graphic tees for our littlest citizens.

The History of Thanksgiving

happy thanksgiving

Thanksgiving. What comes to mind? You may think… A time to stop and reflect. A time to give thanks. A time for friends and family to pack into your house. A meal that everyone gathers around… they eat and eat until it seems impossible to eat anymore. You may think of your great grandmother’s famous apple pie or your in-law’s fried turkey.

Thanksgiving usually comes along with a few key dishes. You’ll find pumpkin pies, stuffing, green bean casseroles and of course, turkey! While these have become staple dishes, we’re afraid we have to tell you that the pilgrims didn’t actually bond over pumpkin pie. Traditions today have evolved over time. So, let’s a look at history of Thanksgiving and how it all came to be.
