So last weekend Atelier Kate hosted its first Moroccan Made Weekend of fun with a Saturday Souk at the Salt Cafe in Casablanca Morocco. Typically we do Pop Up events around different cities for just our brand but this time we decided to open it up to some of the companies in Casablanca that we love who work Made in Morocco. So I figured this would be a cool opportunity to share some of these cool brands with my Kate family!
Riwak Attayibat provides the best quality of what the Moroccan land has to offer. They have a variety of 100% organic products ranging from cosmetics to natural soap and nutritional preservative free products like honey, olives, olive oil and traditional Moroccan spices. The best part of having them here, beyond their smiles and the friendly conversations, was tasting all their amazing honeys and oils and olives! Just yum!

Djibril's Kitchen is a family affair of happy health. These delicious micro-greens come from owner Dexters patience for growing and his wife Sara's love of eating! Dexter kindly offered me a box of sunflower sprouts which I added to some avocado toast and they were peppery and crunchy... the perfect topping but I also found myself munching on them later in the afternoon straight from the box. Check them and their cute kids out on instagram @djibrilskitchen
Indra found his passion in Tarot reading after his journey to India, Australia, Morocco, and Bali. After pursuing his education in science and hospitality, he realized that life is pretty stressful when it is only going to certain direction without any balance and that made him realize that happiness only can be found within yourself. Through Tarot, Indra can help you to find the missing point of your life at the present and make you understand the conflict in your mind and body and help you to understand your presence to see the world in peace. Personally, I found that he has an insightful approach to his readings after he read my tarot. check out his instagram to book a reading or get to know him better @___foreveralone
