INDIA, FALL 2016
a : to go in search of : look for
b : to try to discover
Traveling the world together as a family in search of textiles and a global view full of real world experiences. Meeting and learning from new friends and the artisans who weave our textiles along the way. In 2016, we traveled to India with the kids with no set plans, other than adventure, and it was nothing short of amazing - learning how raw fiber is spun into yarn, wrapped for the warp, and prepared onto a traditional antique loom. There's something about seeing the magic in your child's eyes when things come full circle for them that just takes your breath away. This is Tapri, and the Seek Collections for our family.
The Seek Collection
Women. Mothers. Teachers.
Spinning. Weaving. Creating.
These roles: are some of the most powerful. These actions: fabric that holds us. Together we’ve intertwined them to bring you, the Seek Collection.
Raw cotton is hand spun and then masterfully woven on wooden looms into the softest cloth, making way only for intricately placed dots & lines. Shadowy hints of natural dye along a sandy dune of cream.
Designed to keep you and your little one cool in the summer and warm in winter, the Seek Collection is Sakura Bloom’s first purely raw cotton textile. Hand spun and loomed by the hands of mothers in India, cut and sewn by the hands of mothers in California, and wrapped gently around babies by the hands of mothers across the globe.
Rancho Robles, CA Spring 2017
Tapri launches along with Goa, our very first Seek Collection drop. Ring Slings only.
Ocean Beach, CA Summer 2017
A short time after we launched Tapri and the Seek Collection, we launched our brand new Onbuhimo carrier. With so much love for our carrier and our new textiles, our Tapri + Leather Onbuhimo was born.
San Diego, CA Winter 2018
In the Winter of 2018 we introduced Tapri's dark side...
Orion was offered in Ring Sling, Scout + Leather, and Onbuhimo + Leather but this short run of black raw cotton, dotted with the same twisted yarns as Tapri, didn't last long and we knew we had to weave more.
In the early spring of 2019, the looms were dressed and the weaving began...
