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 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.
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.
From May 1st until May 4th we from "Sabah Ibiza" boots took part in the very special event:
"Las Dalias On The Road"
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.
