COMMON THREAD //
// BRITISH COUNCIL + THE ANOU
A short film made for the British Council about UK designer Sabrina Kraus López's residency with Anou artisans in the Atlas Mountains in Morocco, collaborating on new designs and approaches based on Amazigh’s traditional weaving techniques. Over a one-month period, Sabrina worked with six artisans to create the Common Thread collection, a series of bespoke hand woven rugs inspired by Berber’s heritage, surroundings and personal stories.
The film and photographs outcomes were displayed at designjunction, as part of London Design Festival 2014 in an exhibition curated by Faculty.

Dara and Ciara run Ursa Minor Bakehouse in Ballycastle, Northern Ireland. Inspired by the cafe and self-sustainable culture they saw while travelling together in New Zealand the couple started Ursa Minor in their home kitchen, supplying local cafes and restaurants with amazing breads and sweet bakes on the glorious Antrim Coast.
After only a year they're now planning to open the bakehouse in a dedicated space with the help of a Kickstarter campaign - check out the full story here!
