Pottery predating the mid-2nd millennium has been found at Asa Koma.  As a nod to Djibouti’s antiquity, look at the Navie sandal by UGG.

Happy Birthday, Sagittarius!  Fiery, yet flexible, Sagittarius is definitely a live and let live personality.  They are the explorers of the zodiac and need superb shoes to keep up with their wanderlust.  Here’s some footwear we think will serve The Archer perfectly. Sagittarius the Archer is ruled by Jupiter the planet of luck and expansion, so that explains the persistent twinkle in their eye.  They are typified by a brilliant shade of purple, symbolizing the comingling of zeal (red) and intuition (azure).

We are so inundated with images of a fat, bearded, rosy-cheeked Santa Claus that we forget that other cultures have different renderings of the gift-bestower of holiday season.  Here’s a rundown of a few other cultures’ alternatives to our more corpulent St. Nick. Italy
