    YOUR NAME ON THE WALL

    TELAstory is a collective effort by us, consumers who like to buy clothes, for the people who make our clothes. Show your support by giving up one burrito with guac and we’ll immortalize your name on our wall for our whole team to see and be inspired by every day. Our first manufacturing space actually won’t let us paint on the walls, so this will probably be a huge canvas or something of that nature. We'll work it out.
