The Peruvian Andes: Where we make a difference together

One of these days, I’d really love to go to Peru. I’d like to see the incredible places and people Karen writes about so passionately. But honestly, I don’t know when that will happen. Still, just through the stories here on the Object Mythology blog and through conversations with Karen, I can see what draws […]

Object Mythology and You: Promoting Sustainability and Looking Good Doing It

It really wasn’t all that long ago that it seemed like we had to choose between fashion and social responsibility, looking great and feeling good about our consumer choices. There was a disconnect in our culture between being a truly conscious consumer and appreciating the finer things. When it changed, I really couldn’t tell you. […]

Object Mythology Travel Stories: Visiting Taquile Island & Traditional Peruvian Textile

One of the main highlights from our recent to Peru was our visit to Taquile Island.  Located approximately 45 kms from Puno and only accessible by motorboat we were mesmerized by the local people and learned a lot about their culture and way of life. We arrive by motorboat onto the island and trek a […]

Footloose and Finger Free!

I admit I’m in love with my iPhone. It’s a problem, I realize. I also realize I’m not alone. So here’s my tip of the day for you over-texting, constantly downloading, on-the-go emailers: you don’t have to choose between frostbite and quickly answering your clients while you hail a cab anymore. Technology has hooked up […]

Object Mythology Travel Stories: Uros – The Floating Islands of Lake Titicaca

During our recent trip to the city of Puno, we took a day trip to Uros Islands to learn more about the Uros tribe – which dates back to pre-Incan culture.  The Uros live on islands made of tortora reeds and rely on tourism and local resources to survive.  Speaking primarily Aymara, although a few […]

Furnish Your Home The OM Way!

Choosing the right finishing touches for your home is just like selecting the perfect accessories for a great outfit. Those little details can make all the difference in your home’s style, just as your choice of a bold necklace or chandelier earrings can turn the look of an ordinary little black dress into something spectacular.

Snuggle Up With An Alpaca-Wrapped I-Heart Hot Water Bottle This Winter!

February is still cold and flu season, and there’s nothing I like less than the chills a fever brings. For those too-hot-with-the-blanket, too-cold-without-it nights of battling it out with the germs, a hot water bottle is just what the doctor ordered. Or at least it’s just what my grandma ordered, and the world might be […]

Object Mythology Travel Stories: Condors in the Colca Canyon

Object Mythology Travel Stories:  Condors in the Colca Canyon

One of the main highlights from our recent trip to Peru was our adventure to Cruz del Condor in the Colca Canyon to see the Andean Condor.  Located about three hours from Arequipa, Colca Canyon is approximately 4,160 meters high (13,000 feet above sea level) and was once considered the deepest canyon in the world. […]

Snuggle Up With Baby Alpaca Scarves and Throws!

There’s nothing quite like the feeling of that favorite scarf around your neck, keeping you cozy and warm while you’re wrapped in velvety softness (even on the train platform). Still, I just can’t think of a good excuse for wearing my Infinity Scarves in the house all evening once I’m home and in my pajamas, […]
