Geez Totebag – $18
“On a day when the wind is perfect, the sail just needs to open and the world is full of beauty. Today is such a day.” – Rumi
Although they’re commonly thought of as a weed today, dandelions have been used around the world to serve many medicinal purposes. Their roots, stems, and flowers can be turned into wine, tea, tincture, anti-inflammatory salve, or even fritters (to name a few). Despite their offerings of vibrancy and vitality, most human efforts these days are spent trying to keep them at bay. And this is no easy task: with hundreds of seeds that can spread up to a hundred miles. We hope that Geez will continue rooting itself firmly in communities and land that it belongs to, ever-deepening our commitments to liberatory movements. In our work towards liberation, could we even think of dandelions as comrades in the struggle and in joy?
