Playing Dress-Up in the Atlas Mountains

The ladies of the Tamgounssi weaving center at The Eve Branson Foundation had their own Halloween fun playing dress-up this afternoon …armed with a whole bag of Mushmina fabrics from the south of Morocco!

Most of these talented Moroccan artisans are berbers of the Amazigh tribe so they are not accustomed to wearing  ‘shbka’ fabrics, ….8 meters (26 feet!) of hand dyed cottons traditionally worn by the women of the Sahara. Rich hues in blues, fuchsia, oranges, greens, and teal. Which color calls you?

Stay tuned for our before and after pics. The ladies are planning to make hand embroidered ‘Rhonda’ Moroccan tunics as part of Mushmina’s 2018 collection.

Wishing you a Happy Halloween from Morocco!
