Marhaban!!! Or g'day in Arabic.
Today it's all about Kilim rugs. These are our latest offerings from Turkey and they are simply beautiful. These kilims are tapestry-woven and made completely from wool using natural dyes. The colours are rich and vibrant and the patterns consist of large geometric shapes, triangles and zig-zags.
Do you know that statistically March is our wettest month? Well after the weekend we've just had, there's was no doubting that. The veggie garden loved it. And we had orders to get out, including a kantha quilt to send to Greenland! But by Sunday night, both families were going stir crazy being cooped up for two days, so to get out of the house, we met up at Churrasco for dinner. This Brazilian barbecue restaurant has become a local icon.
There's a lot that goes on behind the scenes at Milly and Eugene. I've talked earlier about our buying trips but it's what happens after we have put our orders in that it gets interesting and well, also really frustrating at times. The post-ordering period can be bittersweet. We are both excited with anticipation to see our products safe on our shores and then downcast and disappointed with complications in the shipment of our precious cargo
