For the first time visitor, India can be overwhelming. So many decisions, lots of noisy and so much colour you don’t know where to look. 👀 Our tours allow you to enjoy the experience with like minded ladies in a safe, small group. We’ll handle the logistics. We’ve found amazing experiences and places to visit, great restaurants and comfortable places to stay. If India is on your bucket list, give me a call to chat. Don’t miss this exciting opportunity! We have 3 tours for early 2020 open for booking. 🙋🏼‍♀️

I’m somewhat of an extroverted introvert 💁‍♀️... Or an introverted extrovert 🤷‍♀️😅 I love people and learning about cultures but I’m also a homebody. 🛌 I love to visit different places and experience new things but I’m also a little bit of a scaredy cat 🙀 so I LOVE these books! And will slowly add more to my library. 📗+📕+📘=📚🤓 I am thrilled to receive them from @thrumsbooks that I won in a @fiberartnow giveaway 📚🥳✈️ #fiberart

The ladies we met in the villages around Bhuj welcomes us into their communities and often homes. They shared their craft and traditions with us. There is a distinct sense of community in India and it makes you realise how lacking it is within our culture. ❤️💙💚🧡💛 . . . . #Textilelover #textiles #fabriclover #textiledesign #textilesindustry #ihavethisthingwithtextiles #fabriclove #fabrichoarder #fabricstash #authenticglobaltravel #ihavethisthingwithtextiles #colourmyhome #colormyhome #textiletraveller #textiletraveler #worldtextiles #womenmakers #tribaltextiles #folktextiles #bohemianlifestyle #designsponge #ruralindia #villagelife #villagesofindia #coloursofindia #tradionsarestillalive #gujarattextiles #gujarattextiletours #textiletourindia #gujarattourism

I could not resist buying a rug in Mococco......could you? Just look at those colours. 🧡💛❤️ . . . Thank goodness for the 30kg luggage allowance with @qatarairways. They rolled my rug up, made a handle out of tape and I checked it in as part of my allowance. 🙌 ✈️ . . . . If you want to join me shopping for rugs in Morocco, our next tour is in October with Lisa from @foragebylisamattock. This tour is seriously amazing. It offers so many unique experiences to see artisans at work - rug making, weaving, recycled glassware, beads and buttons, shoes, brass lamps and more. If you appreciate handmade, Morocco is must see destination.
