Silk Covered Cups, Marrakech.

I found this these little metal cups covered in beautiful sabre, with these cute little pom poms, at the passementerie today in theMarrakech Medina. 

 The skilled atisans carefully wrap this brightly coloured silk thread around these metal cups.

Perfect for placing all your bits and bobs in. They do have a neutral range in black, white and taupe in fact they have every colour of the rainbow, but I thought these colours would make the photo more fun.
