LOCATION: Hoi An (Vietnam), 2010
STORY: Meet my friend Mai. We met while he was participating in a workshop I was teaching on behalf of the Lifestart Foundation. I was in Vietnam to teach handmade books, but somehow about halfway through it became evident that Mai was actually an amazing painter. Once discovered, we created a new project and since then he has been making beautiful hand painted hats. Maiâ€™s life, like mine, was forever changed by that encounter. Each time I travel I learn just how much I donâ€™t know about everything and how exciting it is to gather new information.
