arbol del pan {Bogota, Colombia}

Hidden in a anonymous street at the popular Chapinero neighborhood in Bogota, Arbol del Pan offers the most amazing artisanal French pastries and breads.

The place is small but they have a couple tables for the people who go for their delicious breakfast or lunch.

Ciabbata, sourdough, baguette, and a delicious olive bread are some of their artisanal bread varieties.

Almond croissants, "pain au chocolat" and pistachio-chocolate rolls fresh out of the oven.

with natural dyes

I have been experimenting with natural dyes on linen and organic cotton to create the right shade for my new line of cloth dolls.
For a long time I have been working on this new line, but did not manage to finish it on time because the knitted toys are always a priority.
Hopefully for next season some of these dolls will join the other creatures and be offered to to our lovely retailers and on Fournier's webshop.
