If you like you homeware handmade with Moroccan influences then you must pay a visit to Bohemia Design.
A gorgeous website full of baskets, cushions, throws and more, all made with natural materials and traditional techniques.
‘We believe in handmade; perfectly imperfect wares crafted slowly from natural materials locally sourced. Pottery, basketry, weaving are processes as old as human time, containers for storage and carrying, cloth for warmth and protection. Goods made by hand bear the character of their creator, the nuances and eccentricities integral to each piece.’
A great site to get some gift idea inspiration.
