the FACTORY in Assilah

Tucked away down one of the side alleys (there aren't that many alleys in Assilah, so not hard to find!!) is a relative newcomer to the medina - the FACTORY opened its doors in April this year and has become a welcome diversion to the usual medina fare, as owner and curator Guillaume makes it his business to source beautifully crafted items for his boutique. 
His aim being to provide both Moroccans and visitors from further afield with something unique in his collection of jewellery and homeware. Choose froma display of dazzling rings for your fingers, beautiful ceramics, or the array of  colourful pashminas, perfect for those sunset moments.


The collection includes statement jewellery from India.


And Milan



 As well as some work by contemporary Moroccan designers


The items are all beautifully presented and packaged,
 {and you know how i feel about good packaging}


The white spaces are punctuated by bursts of colour, a welcome relief from the sensory overload of the medina



These jewel coloured hammocks are on my wish list!
If any of these items are on your wish list contact Guillaume  here: gumicside@gmail.com

or better still . . . 

come to the medina and see for yourself!
