MOROCCAN CARPETS

Varför jag säljer mattor när jag jobbar med socialt ansvars full handel?? Jo. I bergen där mattorna en gång är producerade är befolkningen fortfarande väldigt fattiga. Mattorna, nyproducerade och antika är ett perfekt sätt för dem att kunna bo kvar i sin landsbyggs men kunna tjäna en bra försörjning. Så jag reser upp i bergen, handlar direkt från kvinnorna. De får mycket mer än om en lokal uppköpare hade köpt dem, dvs mellanhanden, jag får första chinch på de bästa mattorna eftersom jag betalar mer och ni kan därmed köpa fina äkta Benis och samtidigt veta att pengarna går till behövande människor.

Just nu fler mattor utlagda i shoppen.

NOMADIC ESSENTIALS BAG

nomadic, carry all essentials jpgPart of Nomaic essentials development work is to coach young artists to become their absolute best. Thiis talented guy is called Bouchta. When we first met him he had a tiny workshop in a not so good end of the souk. We saw his happy face and decided that he was the one. So Annakairn sat down with him intensely for a week to teach him about stitching details and how to think business and orders.

He also makes this lovely NOMADIC carry all your essentials bag. A sharp, stylish and very practial bag to carry laptop, folders, an extra cardigan and make up bag.

Today Bouchta has been able to more into a bigger workshop in a better area in the souk and has two employees. He is now in a much better position to have a successful business. Well done Bouchta!

ESSAOUIRA

Morning walk, shopping and exploring.

Waking up before the city and playing

Early morning shopping with my antique dealers from the desert. Great guys. Always a big smile, ready to haggle. Good to do some research on the prices before to know what a fair deal is. Love these chairs from west Africa. Hard to find in these large sizes. But I love them.

Now of to the beach to catch the surf.

CREATIVE SPACE ESSAOUIRA

Flew into Essaouira this morning for a few days relaxation and creative space. Working on a new ceramic serie and where is better to do it than in this relaxing old beautiful city. Essaouira is the place where artists like Jimmy Henricks and Cat Stevens used to hang out in. It is a great alternative to Marrakech, much smaller, it is by the sea, even though the water is always cold and it tends to be windy it is still a great place to hang out for a few days. The wind has its bonuses for all people that like surfing too.

For shopping, there is most things here to buy. Carpets, antiques, ceramic. Less to offer than Marrakech and tend to be a little more expensive.

For me its great to get away from busy Marrakech. I flew from Sweden via London with easy jet. The ticket was 30€ one way!! Try to beat that!!

So today  I went to the beach, hang out with some fishermen, walked around the city and started relaxing into the creative side of a new ceramic collection. Berber inspiration. Coming out in the fall.

A MORNING WITH ANNA GOUTEVA

Yesterday I spent the whole morning at Anna Goutevas workshop in Malmö. Anna is a talented and very inspiring florist with deep knowledge about Flowers, planting and perfect combinations. She fell in love with our new Comptoire serie and I again fell in love with her beautiful workshop at Saltimporten.

We talked about dimensions of a perfect pot and what shapes and designs compliments the plants and flowers. In general a pot should be one third of the plant. Some pot we found wonderful quirky combinations. Such as our Nomad ceramic from Sahara. Got to love these green pots handmade by a nomad family in the desert. My favorit place to be.
