Palmier

During my first lunch at La Famille Marrakech, I fell in love with this handmade palmtree wall hanging.

An unique woolen palm tree, what an appropriate souvenir!

It reminds me of Marrakech in many ways;
... of course both wonderful workshops, when we had lunch at La Famille.
... the adventurous bike ride to the palm grove La Palmaraie.
... a local law in Marrakech, that buildings should not be higher than a palm tree.
... even the high masts throughout the city are masked like palm trees.
... the delicious dates, my favorite sweets

Green Gardens Workshop in a nutshell.

A week in magical Marrakech, discovering, experiencing, creating and sharing with a group of nature-loving women from around the world.
The Green Gardens Workshop is an alternative way to have a unique taste of the Red city.
Besides visiting the most diverse, courtyards, gardens and parks, we cycled through the city and the palm grove, we cooked our own veggie lunch under the banana trees, after shopping the ingredients on the local market.

In the meantime we collected 'greens', seeds and flowers for our herbarium and we also had to update our instagram accounts, haha...

It's impossible to capture this week in and around Marrakech in just a few pictures.
The sights, smells, sounds, mad adventures and fun we had together...

Thanks Amanda, Ank, Christelle, Debbie, Ellen, Flip, Jane, Kerrin, Marielle, Martien, Teresa and Tif!

kaftan mood

kaftan mood

In the Sixties, fashionista Diana Vreeland 'discovered' kaftans during a trip to Morocco.

The ones who know me, know that I could wear kaftans all day every day...

A kaftan in summertime creates comfort, ease in the heat, and very much a sense of grace.

Also after summer, a kaftan is the perfect stylish loungewear after a bath or shower.
Just chuck it over your head...

I brought some kaftans from Morocco, for those who need a kaftan in their lives...

Have a look in my SHOP.
