GEAR: Nipomo Blankets
Functional, simple, and joyful, Liz Clark's collection of blanket rolls, totes, and straw baskets are a celebration of culture caught at a crossroads. Raised near the border of Mexico and California, Liz takes inspiration from the colors of the coast, the history of Southern California, and the traditions of regional artisans for her collection of colorful basics. A small coastal town in San Luis Obispo County, Nipomo California was first settled by Chumash indians, who lived in this bucolic and hilly area for over 9,000 years. Liz's brand of the same name pays homage to this amalgam of cultures existing in California border towns through designs that are both fresh and timeless.
