Forum member 'oamotme' published a study of Kathiri awards, including reference to design similarities with "Schlaraffia" materials.

    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain.
