Rabari, Indian feeling

Doshi Levien is a London-based design office, established in 2000 by Nipa Doshi and Jonathan Levien. • We decided to create a series of rugs that evoke the sensual and shiny world of tribal folk embroidery of India. We wanted our collection for nanimarquina to reference the unfinished embroideries like studies of different techniques in progress, as they gradually emerge over time. The spontaneous compositions of the rugs embody the serendipity and freedom to improvise inherent in each step of a handmade piece. Joyful, irreverent and unique.  Doshi Levien

Clean or distressed?

Lulo from Yellow Design Studio is a textured, retro, amazingly 3-dimensional font family. Lulo Clean is the non-distressed version of the original textured Lulo family. Isn't it amazing that texture can make such a difference in the emotion the font evokes?

My Okra

Okra or Okro known in many English-speaking countries as ladies' fingers, bhindi, bamia, ochro or gumbo, is a flowering plant in the mallow family. It is valued for its edible green seed pods. • Okra is a popular health food due to its high fiber, vitamin C, and folate content. Okra is also known for being high in antioxidants. Okra is also a good source of calcium and potassium. • The products of the plant are mucilaginous, resulting in the characteristic "goo" or slime when the seed pods are cooked; the mucilage contains soluble fiber. Some people prefer to minimize the sliminess; keeping the pods intact, and brief cooking, for example stir-frying, help to achieve this. Cooking with acidic ingredients such as a few drops of lemon juice, tomatoes, or vinegar may also help. Alternatively, the pods can be sliced thinly and cooked for a long time so the mucilage dissolves. The immature pods may be pickled.Wikipedia
