GUR aren’t simple rugs, each GUR rug is a work of Art !
GUR focus on tradition, allowing to discover the expansion of artistic forms using traditional materials and techniques of the history and culture from Portugal.
Working in partnership with the artisan weaver of rugs, GUR invites artists to express themselves on this support with a very specific technique using the same materials with the authenticity of a traditional kitchen rug but now much more fun. 

All the GUR are handmade, held in a traditional handloom, with cotton raw tirela (rag), embossed technique or over layers of colours, finishing with basic sewing.
GUR can be the first place where you put your feet in the morning, a picnic friend or a frame in your living room…..
We love them !!!

While being at Firenze for the Pitti, I’ve decided to go out of town as Firenze was crowd (Pitti visitors and regular tourists).
Firenze is one of my favorite cities but not during Pitti time….

So I’ve decided to book a hotel in Empoli (30 minutes drive from Firenze).

Hall Hotel is located in the very heart of Empoli.
The Hotel was just open two months ago and what a surprise !
The owner have made such a calm and beautiful place (she’s an interior designer) that you want to stay in much longer…

The Owner welcome you with a Beautiful smile while she explain you the way she have renovated this old house.

Again, that’s the kind of place that you don’t want to share and just keep for yourself…


Perhaps some of you knew it; more than 90% of the incense that is sold is carcinogenic !

So when buying incence, you have to be very careful.

One of the only incence who isn’t carcinogenic is the one made in Mount Athos Monasteries.
If you don’t like this kind of “Church” smell, we suggest you to check LISN line.

Lisn is one of the oldest Japanese incense producer.
All Lisn incense are made with natural products and essential oils.
Of course, they aren’t carcinogenic.

They have a huge selection of Japanese flowers smells.

We especially like the original scent.
