Getting excited for next weeks Samsara Online Shop trip to south India. Check out the video about Auroville, City of The Dawn. We are combining finding beautiful products with stays at various ashrams. The first is the Sri Aurobindo ashram at Pondicherry and Auroville, founded on the teachings of Sri Aurobindo. Its spiritual heart is the Matramandir building as pictured. We hope to find lots of beautiful silk scarves and other products
We are getting ready to travel to Cambodia to search for more beautiful products for Samsara. We are particularly interested in the gorgeous silk scarves handwoven as they have been for centuries. Also the great new products that recycle flour and rice bags to make wallets and bags and turn rubber tyre inner tubes in to wallets. This all helps keep rubbish off the streets and makes beautiful things that help poor communities.
