The Travelled Home

What a small, well connected world we live in. Just this week, I got an email from Chris Barret, a local (as in he lives about a block from me) design enthusiast. Chris has traveled to many parts of the world, and after finding many quality, handmade products in various countries, has started The Traveled Home.

The Traveled Home features items from Asia, Africa, and the Pacific Islands. I particularly like the bamboo products (a fast growing tree, bamboo is a truly sustainable product), and the Buddha statues (I have a growing interest in Buddhism, so that may explain it). All of the pieces are made by local artisans, so buying a piece from TTH has a more direct impact on promoting a global economy than buying something that was made in a Chinese factory.
