Share Your City: Touring Small-Town Utah with Makelle Ahlin

At Tea, we believe in making the foreign familiar. We travel the world, each season setting out to explore a new far-off country. We seek out the foreign, immersing ourselves in the customs, colors, tastes and sounds of distant cultures, and venture to find and connect over common threads. But the truth is, adventures don’t always call for a packing list or a passport.

Summer marks the start of adventure, and in an effort to spark exploration right here in our own backyard, we’ve asked Tea families across the US to show us around their cities and share some of the incredible places that make them special. 

From iconic buildings and historical attractions to frequently favored spots, follow along for the inside scoop on their hometown highlights.

Our first stop? Small-town Southern Utah. We join Makelle Ahlin and her band of “Lost Boys” (husband Jared, and three sons, Cooper, Boone and Grizz) as they guide us through striking, sleepy scenery and point out hidden gems along the way.

The Southwest is alive with the vibrant folk art motifs that are so characteristic of indigenous artwork found all over Mexico. Developed by the native Otomi people in the small, plateau town of Tenango, are some of the most fantastic embroidered textiles we’ve ever set eyes on. Drawing inspiration from bold colors, animals, and floral prints, the time-honored tradition of Otomi embroidery is hinted at in a handful of our summer styles.
