There's a time right before
The sunlight is gone
The clouds are a canvas
The light can paint on
That alpenglow lingers
A gentle kiss on the peaks
The same light is in you
As the sunsets you seek.
In April/May, we held our very first Kula Cloth Design Contest. We had over 120 entries and over 6,000 votes. The Kulaverse has spoken, and we are thrilled to share our winning design!
This design was created by Shelby Thayne, who is the artist behind Penn and Light.
About 'Golden Hour' and the artist:
Shelby Thayne is a self-taught watercolor artist who grew up in the foothills of the Colorado Rocky Mountains and now calls the Pacific Northwest home. She started painting as a stay-at-home mom to two small children and quickly fell in love with creating mountain-inspired watercolor art. She hopes her art helps people feel the beauty, majesty, and serenity of being in mountains. In addition to art, Shelby enjoys getting outside with her family, reading good books, and exploring new places.

- durable and waterproof 'clean' side so your hand doesn't get wet
- easily snaps to backpack using plastic snaps
- 'double snap' allows cloth to hang while folded in half (so it doesn't touch pack and/or get dirty on the trail)
- easy to clean or rinse and quick to dry
- retro-reflective thread detail for locating it at night with your headlamp
- size is approx 6x6 inches
- weight per cloth is .63oz (-note: the artist series Kulas are slightly larger than the stock print Kulas due to a different process that we used to custom print each item individually)
