Venture Anywhere with the Voyager Shawl

Whether or not you're planning a flight to a faraway land (carbon credited, of course), the Voyager Shawl offers a dose of the exotic. I can't afford to "buy now" over at Travelocity, but I can at least imagine myself zipping along a charming coastal road on my Vespa - Positano, perhaps? - wrapped in … Continue reading Venture Anywhere with the Voyager Shawl
