 "Blonde Vagabond" was originally a name for my blog during a 6 month trip in Asia in 2010.  I was living a dissatisfied life in Los Angeles, working for a major talent agency and feeling disillusioned.  Many times I felt a mysterious "calling" in my heart to travel to Asia with little-to-no "plan", and finally bought my first one-way ticket.
In India, my life changed forever as I discovered a deeper form of yoga, meditation, sexuality and stillness.  I began creating feather earrings on the road to fund my exploration & gypsy lifestyle.  I fell in love with the creation process & the empowerment of having your own small business.  Thus, Blonde Vagabond was born.

Today, Blonde Vagabond offers a bridge between original handmade designs and locally-made tribal pieces.  
I seek out local artisans during my travels.  There is a level of "love" put into handmade tribal folk pieces that cannot be replicated in our fashion industry today.  I adore discovering handmade, hand-stiched, one-of-a-kind, vintage and well-loved tribal designs.  It is my dream to support these local artists, their traditions, and their lifestyle by bringing their designs to you.
I hope you find something you love.

Survival International is an organization fighting for the rights of tribal peoples to live on their own natural land in the way they choose. Much of the Amazon forest can also be preserved by protecting uncontacted tribes. I have a passion for the protection of uncontacted tribes and tribal peoples to honor and respect their way of life, which I value as a lost art. There is much for us to learn from the ancient wisdom of tribal peoples, and I want to protect the sanctity of this knowledge.

Navdanya is an organization founded by Dr. Vandana Shiva (whom I have seen speak and is one of the greatest speakers!!) and protects the rights of farmers in India. It has helped set up 111 community seed banks and trained thousands of farmers about seed & food sovereignty, as well as sustainable agriculture. It is considered a "woman centered movement" and I support it as a way to give back to the nation that has given me so much - MOTHER INDIA!
