More traditional craft stuff!



More traditional crafty stuff...

The turquoise set that I want but we didn't get because we don't know how to get it home intact. :( There were far more pieces than this though; there were also couscous dish, oval fish plates, laban jug and mugs, large serving plates, beautiful latticed fruit bowl. I'm so disappointed! I now wish we'd bought it and brought it back a few pieces at a time, leaving the rest at my in-laws to collect later!

And some traditional Kabylie jewellery:

Salaam,
If this is any consolation to you...I made the mistake of buying a set when I was in Algeria and 4 years later only the big cous cous dish is here in London and the rest still in dz. Take care,Ines.

Assallam Alaikum,

Mashallah! What a lovely set, and the jewelry is exquisite. Must have been a lovely vacation. Did you take any sunset photos? I love collecting them from the world over :) Or any from KSA?
