A closer look at Sri Lanka

At Black Tomato, we have always been fascinated by not only where people travel, but why they travel too. The inspiration to explore can come from the smallest of muses, whether that’s literature, art or simply a story from the road. We believe that all of these muses, big and small, combine to create an Inner Compass, the inner navigation that leads us all to our next destination.

This spring, we’ve teamed up with Anthropologie, the one-of-a-kind curators of clothing, accessories, gifts and home décor to bring you the latest bearing of our compass; Sri Lanka. From the furrowing expanse of the inland tea country to the pristine shores that fringe its cultural offerings, Sri Lanka is on our travel hit-list this year and we’ve been exploring what it is that makes this Indian Ocean island so alluring – the landscapes, the styles and the rich culture. Join us and discover where your Inner Compass is pointing…

Get Inspired

When you're planning a trip, where does your inspiration come from? Do you search online? Between the pages of a novel? Or are the styles and colors of a certain country enough to ignite the inspiration that guides you? For us, there’s no end to the fuel that powers our compass, and lately we've been fascinated by what it is that makes some of our favorite female globe-trotters embark on their adventures. That's why we sat down with a few of our favorite inspirational travelers to explore what it is that keeps them on the road.
