our friend Chrissie is doing things. big things.
together with co-founder Elizabeth Gordon, they have coordinated a series of trips tailored for design industry professionals, "creating closer relationships between the design community and artisan social enterprises around the world".
how amazing would it be to learn natural dying or weaving in Guatemala? Or turn scrap metal into jewelry in Kenya? a big perk of this trip is meeting the artisans and designers in these developing countries and learning, step by step, how to successfully collaborate together.

it's pretty hard to say no to an adventure like this...
