It would be just rude of me not to share with you the treasures I brought back from our shopping trip. As I mentioned, our main objective was to shop for inspiration for work, which was really great, better than I expected. We bought tons of bags, leather, fabric, straw for all sorts of amazing details and hand-made techniques. But, one can't spend four days shopping in the souks and not come home with a couple treasures of her own. Here's what I brought back from Morocco.
I bought a pair of snake slippers. This on-trend, shoe style were $15, $10 if you're a better negotiator than me. Ollie got a pair of moccasins too, as well as this adorable leather camel.
One thing I probably wold have spent more time browsing, had this been a personal trip, jewelry. There was so much beautiful silver jewelry with all my favorite stones, turquoise, onyx and moonstone. I could have spent hours treasure hunting for the perfect piece to take home. Though I did find this beautiful turquoise ring.
I also brought back a blanket, a small painting of the main square (I try to collect street art from every place I visit), and way too many products from the herbal shop.
And finally, a reason people travel to Marrakech, the rugs! I bought two. The first one was something I was actually looking for, a small rug for my bathroom, and I found it right away, checked that off my list and had no more reasons to stop in any more rug vendors. Of course the second rug didn't even need hunting, it may as well have been waving like a flag begging for me to bring it home, so I did.
Can't wait to show you all these beautiful treasures in their new home, follow me on Instagram to see more.
