I could wear kaftans all day every day, but I don't...
The printed photo on the wall is my all time favorite photo from Marrakech.
Streetart by Guim Tio Zarraluki, made during the Biennale in Marrakech 2014.
Have a look at this VIDEO, where you can see the artist at work.
(I've posted the video once before, but for those who have not seen it yet, it's worth watching!)
In the meantime the mural has disappeared from the wall in de Medina, but thank goodness we still have this print.
This shot with the passing man in perfectly toned traditional clothing, makes the mural even better.

The harlequin herringbone pattern.
My two favorite patterns meet each other in this handmade rug, also to be used as a blanket.
You can find the harlequin herringbone pattern with a lot of detailed photo's, so you can make your own harlequin herringbone rug or -blanket. It's a very nice project to work on, because you can make a harlequin a day and finally all the small daily projects, will end up as a rug or blanket.
You can download the P A T T E R N in my Etsy shop.

Two handmade wood & wool stools in the S H O P.
Scrapwood stool legs with a cover of Moroccan wool!
One stool seat is covered in white yarn and the other one is covered with turquoise crochet.
Both handmade, summer style and unique.

Last week I went for a mini-trip to my friend Ank in Marrakech and stayed in her amazing green and relaxed oasis in the middle of the Medina.
A short work-holiday, just between the CC & GG workshops, to shoot the interior of the hotel for the new website of Chambres d'Amis, which will be updated soon.
Besides shooting, styling and a 'flowerday' for a few days, I enjoyed immensely to be together with my dear friend & partner in crime Ank in Marrakech. Love this place!
Here's a small preview. Once the website is updated, I will let you know ...
