The story behind
Sumatra is made of 100% recycled velvet. The intricate embroidery is inspired by traditional Indonesian batik fabric. The border pattern is called parang, meaning cliff, ridge, or slope in Javanese. It is one of the oldest batik patterns and was once worn only by the royal family. The waves symbolize an unceasing spirit striving for excellence, like waves crashing against the cliffs.
The Solana Story
This spring we launched a call for travel writers to share their stories on Lessons Learned in Unknown Places and Moments of Connectivity in Nature. The result is an inspiring and eclectic mix, from free diving in Hawaii, to a village in Thailand, to volcanic eruptions in Antigua, to sultry days in Cuba, and more. We hope their reflections encourage you to celebrate what's right with the world, shedding light on all that's unfamiliar and beautiful.
