Introducing our ‘Always Veranito´series, a sunny place inside our Journal where the days are filled with little moments of joy, seashell hunting, salty hair adventures and siestas featuring the families that inspire us.
First off, Dolo – our own founder and designer – and her daughter Mar take us to their last summer in Cabo de Gata.
Dolo & Mar
You escaped to…
Cabo de Gata, Almería, España.
Summer feelings: to you, how does summer…
…taste like fig, tomato and ‘pescadito’.
…sound like chicharras
…feel like freedom
…look like time stands still
…smells like sea, salt and lime.
Your favorite activities with Mar?
Slow, unrushed mornings.
Treasure hunting at the beach.
Perfume making with Santa Rita flowers, which brings me back to my own childhood.
Waving goodbye to the sun at every sunset.
Your favorite summer rituals?
Having a glass of white wine under the moonlight, while enjoying the peaceful cricket sounds.
You are at your happiest when…
I’m barefoot and ‘time’ doesn’t exist
A souvenir to bring home with you?
Make space to bring LOTS of fig marmalade
