You've got mail! 📬

Posted by Sandra Zhao on

We first reached out to illustrator Lulu Kitololo last summer to create textile designs together, and we are so excited to be sharing a preview (of sorts) with you through her beautiful greeting cards! Don't fret, we have there textiles in production at this moment, but we thought, what main course isn't made better with an amuse bouche?

Lulu is the founder of Lulu Kitololo Studio in Nairobi, where she creates designs that celebrate diversity – drawing inspiration from nature, as well as cultures and crafts from around the world and in particular, her beloved home continent, Africa. We're thrilled to be able to share her gorgeous cards with you, and hope that they will help to spread joy wherever they go! PS Check in next week for an artist's interview with Lulu!

WHAT WE'RE READING // The Book of Unknown Americans by Cristina Henríquez

Once you start reading this novel, I promise you won't be able to put it down. Through the stories of two families who give everything up to come to America, Henriquez shares the stories of an entire community -- individual stories of love, live and American dreams. These are deeply relatable stories, immigrant or not - how we deal with guilt, how we shelter those we love from pain, and how we all suffer from unseen, unspoken and unpredictable consequences - she shares the profound humanity in the inhumane.


WHAT WE'RE LISTENING TO // Tell Them, I Am with Misha Euceph

We love listening to these conversations between Misha and her guests about defining experiences in their lives. Each guest and story varies but they are connected by the thread of being Muslim voices in America. From last week's episode with Jewher Ilham about her father, a Uyghur professor and human rights advocate to chef Reem Assil and early her love for filmmaking, these are fun and engaging listens!


Born in Cleveland and raised in Abuja, Lady Donli brings a cross cultural perspective to her music, which bounces between R & B, alternate jazz, highlife and Afrobeat, all in a desire to provide a sense of escapism.  Let's join her, shall we?
