The story...

In 2005, 9-year old Savanna had to crochet a doily for her 3rd grade school project. While she did a very nice job, she added a few too many drop stitches at the outer edge of the trivet causing it to curl and form a small lip. On the end table it sat idly for over a year, until one night a family friend, Chris, picked it up and tossed it across the room at Savanna's dad, Patrick. As it floated across the room and landed softly in Patrick’s hand, the two of them stood silently, jaws hanging slightly. They played catch for the next hour, joking all the while about what a hit this thing could someday become.

Finally, almost a year later, they decided "Let’s give this a spin," and began researching where hacky sacks come from as it reminded them of a cross between a hippie hat and a hacky sack. The answer – Guatemala.  Meanwhile, Savanna’s mom, Mindy, made a half dozen or so prototypes, each of which took her several days in her spare time. Patrick and Chris shipped the prototypes off to different village-based production groups in Guatemala . What was sent down were two-toned concentric circular striped discs of the most ordinary sort. What came back blew their minds. The colors, patterns and variety the Maya artisans had created was amazing.
