Capri Sun August 04 2014, 0 Comments
I’ve visited many places that have enchanted me, and it’s a great feeling falling in love with a location. Last week it happened to me all over again when I visited Capri. Everything about this tiny Italian island was wonderful: the food, the people, the weather, the cliffs, and the sea. Especially the sea…

Put the Lime in the Coconut July 14 2014, 0 Comments
With these long summer days I just want to drink something cold, refreshing, and sweet. A coconut and lime slushy sounds like the right fix to have. This Coconut Frozen Limeade recipe does the trick, and it’s the perfect mix of sweet coconut and sour limes.
Makes 4 Servings
2 1/2 cups crushed or small ice cubes
1 cup coconut milk, well-shaken if from a can
1/3 cup lime juice (from about 3 limes)
3 tablespoons granulated or superfine sugar (more or less to taste)
Lime slices for garnish
Blend every thing until it reaches your desired consistency — almost smooth, for a crunchier effect, or fully smooth, for a milkshake/creamier effect. Pour into glasses, garnish with lime.

Fly Me Down To Rio May 14 2014, 0 Comments
Sometimes not only do we want to escape to a far away exotic destination, but we want to time travel to a specific time in that particular place. That’s how we feel about Rio. Don’t get us wrong we’d love to get the chance to catch the next plane to Rio, yet we would have loved to go there in the 1950's and 1960's. Whether it be travel posters or images of Impanema beach, we cannot stop dreaming of vintage Rio.

Tropical Moonlight May 12 2014, 0 Comments
We are always inspired by palms. Last year our Palm print was a take on the palm leaf. This year, since we went to the tropics, we had to add the coconut palm as part of our prints. The Moon Palm print is an ode to long balmy nights under a tropical moonlight listening to Latin beats sipping on a fruity drink. As a symbol of a tropical island paradise, we had to use the coconut palm in our latest “Take me to the Tropics” collection

Last week we took Kuwait to the tropics, with the launch of our Summer 2014 “Take me to the Tropics” collection at Dar Al Funoon. “Take me to the Tropics” is a collection inspired by the 1930s fascination for the Tropics, the discovery of exotic lands by propeller plane, multicolored fruits and jewel toned birds. This collection is an infusion of color, heat and romance that will transport you to balmy tropical escapes. The Pop-Up shop at Dar Al Funoon previewed ecru’s Summer 2014 latest collection of block printed textiles, handmade table accessories, handwoven cotton rugs, marble bowls and plates, brass light fixtures and resort clothing line ‘noon for ecru’.
