Anda Pa'l

Physically, I live in Seattle, WA but my heart will forever be in San Juan. And this week I feel it more than ever. If you feel the same and are looking for ways to help, I’ll be giving 50% of all sales proceeds to ComPRometidos in support of #Maria relief. #ricanstruction #fuerzaPR —�—�—�—�—� I’ve spent two sleepless nights trolling through the internet looking at devastating pictures and crying my eyes out. I’m sure many of you living far from PR have been doing the same. It’s devastating and surreal to see all the destruction. But us Boricuas, we are happy, positive people who smile even in the grimmest of times. In that spirit, in the next couple of months, I’m going to be sharing pictures and stories (here and in my blog) from my adventures in different towns around the island. I’ll with my hometown of San Juan…stay tuned!

Seattle-based Puerto Rican designer Rita Cidre’s Anda Pa’l is a line of canvas bag with too-relatable phrases, including “jaja > haha” and “Trá Trá Trá.” Cidre began the line as a way to cope with feeling homesick for the island, and now you can carry a little piece of Puerto Rico with you and give your pens and pencils the kind of case they deserve.
