Sometimes I love walking out early into the souks, seeing the workers waking up and having breakfast at the local hangout.
Mmmmmmm!! Avocado juice and bread from the local bakery.

Planning two absolutely awesome trips for the autumn of this year. First out is one weeks retreat yoga with amazing Erdic. So happy to be doing this as part of my job. Bringing people to yoga and bringing people to Morocco is a great combination.

Today is a prefect day for buying carpets from us!!
Annakarin always handpicks the carpets from local people in the mountains making sure the profit goes straight to the people that makes then. Cutting out the middle hands is a way to support local communities, fair trade and creating a better future for the people.
I will never stop admiring the amazing work that these women do when they are weaving. And as you get to know the carpet styles you understand poetry and the meaning that is hidden in the. Sometimes you see love letters for a man of another tribe too far to travel to and sometimes you see humour and wisdom. So in other words you see life. For all that is is.
See our selection of carpets here

So finally after a lot of searching we found the perfect house for now in Marrakech... Watch this space to see our sidsid interiour showroom taking form.
It is just so exiting to go out to the souks and buy all the cool stuff available from local craftsmen, antiquemarkets and also to produce some of our own.
