Dr. Elizabeth Lindsey is an expert in the field of cultural intelligence.
A fellow of the National Geographic Society, S.F.-based explorer Dr. Elizabeth Lindsey knows a thing or two about seeking out indigenous traditions, crafts and the people behind these artistic endeavors. After a recent three-month trip throughout Southeast Asia, Lindsey, along with National Geographic, decided to cultivate Road Less Traveled, a collection of goods inspired by the spirit and beauty of the lands and cultures she visited. Jewelry, pillows, wood carvings and handmade ceramics from Thai, Balinese and Indian artisans make up the three color-coordinated collections. shoproadlesstraveled.com
