Where this bowl is made?
High up in the High Atlas, South of Marrakech…
High up in the mountains, where the walnut trees are growing, people are used to treasure every little piece. Waiste is a word that’s hardly known. The smallest rest of a giant tree is used to create every day items (like the cute spoons). When it comes to shaping the form of those bowle, it takes many hours.
While we hardly have time to look at one minute of this film, it takes them about 2 hours or more to finish the basic…
Then it’s the women’s turn to send them, one by one. So many hands and lives that has touched the piece before it ends in a kitchen somewhere!
Whenever you have the opportunity, sit down beside a craftsman and watch the process.
Through Your bowl of breakfast you will connect again, every time.
