The Irish Times - Thursday - Property - - Interiors -

Morocco first came to coun­ter­cul­tural promi­nence in the 1950s when Tang­ier drew writ­ers Paul Bowles, Wil­liam S Bur­roughs and Jack Ker­ouac. In the 1960s, it was a place to stop off on the hippy trail and Es­saouira was the mag­net for mu­si­cians Jimi Hen­drix, Frank Zappa and Cat Stevens. Around the same time fash­ion de­signer Yves Saint Lau­rent was putting down roots in Mar­rakech, mov­ing in 1980 to the Villa Ma­jorelle prop­erty whose gar­dens are open to the pub­lic. At Bo­hemia De­sign you can buy the coun­try’s vin­tage and con­tem­po­rary wool stor­age pots, di­vine tex­tile sculp­tures that range in price from about ¤23 for the new styles and from ¤44 to ¤124 for the vin­tage pieces.
