New "Berber Boots"

Before I continue with our trip I want to show you our new "Berber Boots" which are just finished.
There is a lot of work and love in these boots, since the production of one of these boots takes between 2 and 3 days.
Thanks a lot to our craftsman Youssef who really makes a fantastic job. He lives high up in the mountains where you find the calm to produce some really unique items.











Once again in Morocco - Otra vez en Marruecos

It's a long time since my last entry in our blog. The simple reason: I just forgot about it.
Now that I'm in Morocco since almost 3 months, relaxing a lot and, off course, also working a little bit now and then, all of a sudden I remembered this blog and thought it might not be a bad idea and open it again.
I don't want to start back again from the last entries some years ago but re-begin it in the near-by past.
After a long, very hot and busy summer season of 2016, Sabah & I were really looking forward towards the end of the season at the end of October.

The history of kelim boots

The history of the original kelim boots
In the early 70's I travelled a lot through Morocco and found many old kelims and carpets with holes in or dirty so that they couldn't be sold any more. That inspired me to use them for another purpose and gave birth to the first kelim boots and bags.
From 1972 on I offered them in my shops in the Netherlands and Germany.
At the end of that decade I took a break and finally in 1985 I settled on the island of Ibiza and from that moment on I started once again to produce the kelim boots.

My little helpers

While I'm working on our website there are often some little helpers around me.






























Here you can see "Twister" controlling my print work.























She is slowly getting tired


and finally goes to sleep


"Loubna" also wants to enter the office


while "Luna" and "Mami" wait patiently on the visitor's chairs.


After a short break "Twister" is now testing the quality of our kelim bags.


Our baby "Rim" is still too young to work


and takes a rest in the basket.

Sabah Ibiza boots in Amsterdam


From May 1st until May 4th we from "Sabah Ibiza" boots took part in the very special event:
"Las Dalias On The Road"
inAmsterdam.
With around 100 standholders from the Las Dalias Hippymarket on Ibiza we moved for 4 days to Amsterdam to build up our market in the "Westergasfabriek".
We transferred the Ibiza feeling and spirit for a few days into the beautiful Dutch town of Amsterdam.
Before going to Amsterdam we'd already been twice with this market in Madrid in 2011 and 2012, and last year a limited number of stalls to Marbella and Milan.
