Customer Practices Commentary

Some people have expressed that they feel the company is not very responsive to email inquiries about order status.

Culturally Appropriative Designs
Yes
Resolutions to Appropriation

They have some wraps with names like like Inca, Bodhi (after the tree under which the Buddha sat where he gained enlightenment), Yoga, and Karma. Inca is the only one that is no longer being sold. As of this writing (February 2017) the others are heavily discounted on their website.

Still in production:
Zara - From their website: "The pattern is inspired by old Norwegian knitting recipes and clothes/rugs from South America. "

Paisley - From their website: "Paisley or Paisley pattern is a droplet-shaped vegetable motif of Indian and Persian origin, similar to half of the Yin yang symbol. "
