Visiting one of our favorite vendors

We had a great morning out at Yala Designs.  They have a new(ish) owner and I always keep my fingers crossed in this situation  that they won't destroy the line. No need to worry In this case.  The new owner, Catherine (on the right) has stayed true to the best of the brand and is adding her own twists. Besides the uber soft and yummy bamboo clothing, they've added alpaca and organic cotton to the line.


I was really impressed with their commitment to organic and natural fibers and fair trade.  Plus they want to manage as close to the production source as possible so they now have small sewing rooms in China, Peru, and near LA. which they visit twice a year.  It's really a global brand but located Right here in little old Bleugene.  Look for lots of new Yala pieces in store soon.
