Happy Friday, My Creative Thinkers,
I just received a new form of inspiration in the studio this week. It's an authentic Indian Book Charkha, and it's been a long dream to own one. It's also part of research for the new book I've been working on for the past few months. Documenting years of work is daunting, but I have been up to the challenge. We've also been undergoing internal changes in the company to make us a more resilient brand with sustainable values that will carry us into another two decades. Thankfully we have teamed up with some very good people, and together things are moving us in a positive direction.
If you didn't know, the book charkha was instrumental in helping India become self-reliant and overcome British rule. In a time of gentrification and country division, this message means more to me than any massage anyone wants to convince me of at the moment. The Pandemic has been hard for some, but for me, it has been a time to place great care into this company and myself. I can't wait to share more with you, along with some of the community projects I and other wonderful New yorkers have been working on during this very trying time.
Stay strong, you powerful thinkers. Here's an adorable little vid to get you through the weekend.
