Weekend Reading: Animal Free (Real) Leather Is Almost Here

Hello from Medellin!

If you’ve been following my Instagram, you’ve seen a few cute and sustainable spots I’ve fallen in love with in this City of Eternal Spring. I can’t wait to blog about this place and share all the best spots with you, because I’m really loving this city!

Back before I left NYC, though, the sustainable resort wear brand Par en Par stopped by my apartment with the talented photographer Mukul Bhatia for a feature and an interview. Read up on my travel philosophy on their blog, featuring many other amazing women.

Also, I’ve been following Modern Meadow, a lab-grown leather start-up, for a while. So thrilled to write this profile of them for Inc. Magazine!
