And I can think of no better example than Leigh Morlock. The above description fits her perfectly. One of the most fearless and creative people I've met, Leigh left the comforts of the western world several years ago to "temporarily" consult on a weaving project in Cambodia ... years later, she's not only living there -- and calling Cambodia her home -- but she's started a business. Being an entrepreneur in America is hard enough, but overseas? Well, let's just say she has some interesting stories. From speaking with her it seems to be an enriching experience that's been dotted with many triumphs and a handful of tribulations. The best part? She gets to admire the fruits of her labor in the exquisite textiles (bags, accessories, fabric and home decor) made by her company, Push Pull Cambodia.
So when Leigh flew back to New Jersey for a few weeks and suggested a trunk show at Kanibal Home ... well, I obviously jumped on the idea. Just look at these beautiful goods for yourself:
So please join us for a Push Pull Cambodia trunk show tomorrow (Thursday) evening at 7:30pm!
* 20% off Push Pull Cambodia bags and pillows
* A discussion with founders Joellen Nicholson + Leigh Morlock, who will be on hand to talk about the business and product
* Refreshments, including wine and snacks
This is also the first night of SHOP LATE, SHOP LOCAL -- an initiative created to encourage local shopping for the 2011 holiday season. Every Thursday during the month of December, participating businesses will extend their operating hours until 10pm and offer customers an additional incentive. And the Push Pull Cambodia trunk show is the kick-off for Kanibal Home!
As background, Push Pull Cambodia synthesizes traditional technique with modern pattern designs and contemporary color palettes. They hire underemployed weavers who are skilled in the craft of Ikat weaving and make all of their fabrics by hand.
