Ooh La La

We spotted this shopping cart at the Repetto store in Paris! It's quite functional and stylish in our Forever Blue print. Brigitte Bardot made Repetto ballet flat famous in the 1960's when she wore the dance shoe on the streets of Paris.

Eastsider in Paris

Check out the Eastsider LA, a website detailing the "scenes, sightings and stories from Echo Park and beyond." Recently, the Eastsider contacted us about our latest tweets in regards to the ash crisis. Check out the article "Paris is nice but it's not Highland Park", featuring a story I wrote about being stranded in Paris.

Stranded in Paris

Bonjour from Paris! First off, I must apologize for the total lack of blogging for the past 2 weeks! Members of the oilcloth team (including myself) have been vacationing in Paris since April 2nd. We were to return the 16th but due to the volcanic eruption in Iceland we are "stuck". Although we do count ourselves lucky to be in the city of lights and not stranded in an airport or worse we absolutely cannot wait to return to work and our home in LA! Our scheduled flight has been repeatedly cancelled, unfortunately we are unable to book a flight until Sunday the 25th, more than a week past our original return date. We have great people working with us in LA so that Oilcloth International can keep running smoothly; but please send us positive vibes in hopes that we get home soon!
