A Postcard From Honduras

It's so good to be back in Honduras. We recently enjoyed a week of living and working in the small village of Sabana Grande at friend Holland's beautiful workshop. Being surrounded by its gorgeous sunsets and luscious foliage, it's hard to imagine why it's been so long since our last visit to Central America. The Kalalou Spring/Summer 2016 catalog saw a newly revamped collection of Made In Honduras accessories and you can expect even more offerings for Fall/Winter 2016. We love the earthy look of our naturally crafted river stone products and are excited to introduce a plethora of new clay pots and plant stands to keep up with the ever-growing house plant movement! Scroll through a few photos from our latest trip to Honduras as well as a few of our favorite selections from the SS2016 line.

Spring/Summer 2016 Market Wrap Up

That's a wrap on our Spring/Summer 2016 market season! What a crazy three weeks it has been. After traveling to Atlanta then Dallas and finally Las Vegas, we are in awe of the customer response to our new collection. It was a blast kicking everything off in Atlanta with our 30th Birthday party and we'd like to say a special thanks to everyone who came by to celebrate with us. It was a heck of a party! As always, traveling to Dallas and Las Vegas is a special treat. We love the opportunity to meet our western and centrally located customers to get a better feel for how they use the Kalalou line. After a month of travel, it's so nice to be back home, but not for long! We're already gearing up for High Point Market (April 16-20). So if you haven't made it out to any of our showrooms this year, there's still one more chance to see the SS2016 line and meet the Kalalou crew! Thanks again for your continued support and here's to 30 more years!

Stay tuned to the Kalalou blog for our breakdown of best sellers from SS2016 market...

HERE’S TO NAIVETY...
It was a beautiful sun drenched day in the colorful market square of Ocho Rios, Jamaica when fate tapped us on the shoulder. That was 30 years ago... we were young, creative and energetic. But, mostly we were naive. We didn’t know about all the things that could go wrong in growing a business. And so we embarked on a journey that has brought us to where we are today. Had we known of the challenges and obstacles that were possible, we never would have taken that first step of importing baskets from Jamaica to Mississippi. But, we did take that step and the many steps afterwards for 30 years. Our cover shows a 30 year old photograph of Mr. Fire, our first basket weaver. Sadly he passed away in 2005, but will live forever in our hearts and history. It has been quite a ride, and we are reliving some of our great adventures of growing a business with some old stories in this catalog. We hope you enjoy. So here’s to naivety and here’s to 30 years! Thank you for being a customer.

Owners since 1986

Stay tuned for more stories and memories as we get ready for an exciting market season in 2016!

Thanks Atlanta!

 

Thanks to everyone who came out to the Kalalou showroom at AmericasMart in downtown Atlanta! The ATL show always has a fantastic turn out and this year was no different. We had a blast catching up with long time customers as well as meeting new ones. Unveiling our new Botanica creation is always an exciting part of our Atlanta Market experience and we were thrilled to hear your amazing feedback on this year's "Botanimal!" Nicknamed "Ella Phantzgerald," our Kalalou mascot was a roaring success! If you joined us in Atlanta, we hope you were inspired and excited for the upcoming Holiday shopping season!
