I Love Morrocco

We went there once. A group of us went to avoid Christmas and celebrate the beginning of the 90's. We were a disperate group, a small child, a baby my boyfriend of the time who must of had some kind of un-diagnosed mental illness, It was like hideous kinky without the kinky.
We roamed around the desert and some intrigueing towns staying wherever the mood took us, it was brilliant (on reflection).

Similarly, roaming around the alleys or twittens of Hastings I saw this great shop called Warp and Weft, the stock is constantly changing. Along with some carefully chosen vintage clothes the proprietress Leida also has a supply of hand tailored clothing that supports single mothers and women in Tangier. She has these beautiful black pumice stones that I have asked her to source for me too, she explained she would be returning to Morrocco soon to meet up with the local artisans and that the pumice stone supply depended on how many stones the pumice man could find on his walks in the rift mountains.


Amazing !
