New Travel-Inspired Collection from Coral & Tusk

The fine folks at the Brooklyn-based Coral & Tusk have a new travel-inspired collection of products. Owned by designer and illustrator Stephanie Housley, the shop has been making embroidered goods since 2007. The Adventure Collection features pillows, passport cases, luggage tags and more. "Inspired by the boats that bob along the Seine and the hot air balloons that dot the air above the ancient city of Cappadocia, new characters Skipper Cat and Paco Dog invite you along with them on the rides of their lives!" View the whole whimsical collection on the Coral & Tusk website.

The video is set to the music of UNKLE and narrated by the poem Uncommon Ideals by Daniel Crockett and read by Jeff Hordley.

On Break, But Not For Long
