    To market we go

Aja is an Orisha, the spirit of the forest, the animals within it and herbal healers. She is a patron of the forest and all the animals within it.

    The ultimate summer wardrobe essential

    There are few pieces of clothing that have spanned thousands of years and yet still evoke a sense of the exotic, the bohemian and carefree more than the kaftan. A traditional garment of the Middle East and North Africa, its popularity is widespread and ever evolving. It’s a piece that isn’t defined by fashion seasons, it’s flattering on pretty much any body (one size fits all), and can be worn for anything from floating about while entertaining at home, languorous summer lunches or as a breezy beach cover-up. It’s believed that the kaftan originated in Ancient Mesopotamia. And later, during Ottoman times, it was a luxury garment, usually made from…
