Team Teysha is settling back in for a brief time in Austin after the most epic summer imaginable. We rocked and rolled and liberated all over the US of A for 9 whole weeks, 15 states, six music/film/yoga festivals, many trunk shows at people's homes and boutiques, cities on mountains and lakes and the ocean, and amazing national and state parks. We are so, incredibly grateful. When we first had the idea to do the summer tour, our friends and family thought we were crazy. And so did we. So we scaled the tour town from 18 states to 15-- much more manageable :)Read more

Greetings, greetings wonderful friends! Since we last left you we have been Kickin It all over the place. From Atlanta, we headed to Athens, Georgia- Travis's college town for AthFest. Athfest felt like a young SXSW, with music coming out of every bar and restaurant in a mile radius. It was fun for Travis to be back in Athens and be able to share his business with friends old and new. In Athens, we had our first pop up shop at the lovely Terrapin Brewery and the next day set up at a music venue called New Earth. We had the pleasure of meeting in person our new intern, Brooke Davidson from UGA and she was so passionate about Teysha...Read more
A trip to Chichicastenango, a few hours by bus from Antigua, can be an overwhelming experience - but the amazing collection of artisan goods being sold by the artists there make for an unforgettable experience. Artisans - men, women, and their families - make the journey to Chichicastenango each week to gain a wider audience for their goods, and tourists travel hundreds of miles to lay their eyes on this famed market. I wanted my first visit to the market to be a real Guatemalan adventure, so I grabbed a chicken bus early in the morning that I was told went somewhere in the vicinity of Chichi. This bus dropped me off in a town called Chimaltenango and...Read more
Wooh! Crazy how fast a week (or two) can go by! The past 11 days have been full of Nature, new friends, new cities, great food, music, lots of shoes and boots, and all around good times! Before we left Austin, we were in major preparation mode- getting the Teysha Nomad (our vehicle) ready, preparing our Bonnaroo display, organizing inventory, printing, trying to think of everything we could ever possibly need after arriving to Bonnaroo. It was much different compared to our booth at ACL where we were just 15 minutes away from home- now we were 15 hours away and going to be living on the Bonnaroo farm for 6 days...! We were nervous, excited, a bit frightened, but...Read more
