If I was your girlfriend would you remember to tell me all the things you forgot when I was your man.... I’ll give you television, I’ll give you eyes of blue, I give you a man who wants to rule the world..... (IGGY wrote this song and I can’t believe he’s STILL ALIVE!!) I would really love for this Admin to end so I can get back to my actual work. But this works too #Prince Break. #Textiles & #clothing, #fashion, it’s a love. Not to wear, but to watch. I also love 🌏 and 🌈🕊🐝🦋🐋🐘🐕🐈🌲🌼🌕🌚 the world! The #earth/planet is where/wear we live. We get one #planet & many 👗👚👕👖👘👢👛Which is more important to you? #Sustainability or #Fascist#Fashionistas? #Tanneries and Textile manufacturing has been a #toxic chemical producer for too long, as do #drycleaners. #ConspicuousConsumption, #neocapitalism/late-stage capitalism, call it what you wish. This is it. This is what it looks like. The #world#collapses around the ‘normal’ peasants & the #wealthy consume and #consume with endless resources & reckless abandon. They’ve already rigged the system- the best of everything for those with the most cash. The rest of us will melt in the heat created by their carelessness. #ClimateChangeisREAL. It’s No HOAX. It’s not yet hopeless. #ITMFA#RESIST 🗳🌈🌊✌️💖👗not to mention the tremendous waste of ACTUAL fabrics!! Clothing that is old? I’ve made every attempt to use #AMERICAN#POLLUTION- will specify otherwise #reducereuserecycle#climatechange
World-famous Chaouwara leather tanneries in Fes - also famously stinky. 🤭
The tanneries are one of the city’s most iconic sights - grids of stone wells filled with various colored liquids.
The ancient craft of tanning and dyeing dates back to the 11th century! Tip: Each leather store has a different view of the actual tannery. Pay a little more for them to bring you inside if you can stand the smell! 😷
