Oumayma El Boumeshouli in Morocco
‘Kelaat M’Gouna is a very special place for me. It is the birthplace of my father and it is the city where most of my family lives.
It was always a dream for me to go there and to shoot something special. Faithfull the brand helped me to realize this dream.
Kelaat M’Gouna is a very special place as it is known for their beautiful roses.
Each year the Kelaat M’Gouna Rose festival celebrates these flowers and is famous throughout Morocco. At the rose festival time the singing and dancing in the streets of Kelaat M’Gouna goes on into the night. Rose petals are thrown onto the dancers in the streets and as part of the celebration a Rose Queen is chosen.
In this village many products made out of roses are hand made by the locals.
I love to go here every year to see my family. Each time I buy different products and bring them back with me to Amsterdam. In this way I always have a little piece of Kelaat M’Gouna with me.
I hope to retire there one day.
