The Expatriate Collection
Expatriate comes from the Latin roots ex-, "away from," and patria, "one's native country." The Expatriate Collection was formed by an American who has lived abroad for over 15 years in Japan, Europe, Canada, and the Middle East. His collection was formed almost exclusively while living outside the United States.
