World Family Ibiza
World Family Ibiza was founded by Alok and Merel and together with the whole family they run this special label. The collection consists of accessories that are all handmade. The designs were created by bringing together materials and local traditions from different cultures from all over the world. The combination of leather, embroidery and special decorations that they have collected during family trips make the products special and unique.
A love novel
The story of the Spanish Alok and Merel from Amsterdam seems like a love novel. They met in Ibiza when they both left everything behind to start a new adventure on the Spanish island. Alok was a broker in Barcelona, but wanted a new start for him and his daughter Carola. Merel left a career as a model and came to the Spanish island with her children Goldie and Asher. Alok and Merel traveled to the Netherlands together after their meeting for a workshop where they made a tipi together. They brought this tipi to Ibiza where this home-made tent became the home for Alok, Merel and their children. They were completely at one with nature here.
On a trip to Morocco
For the first time they went traveling as a family. They bought them an old van and drove through Morocco for four months. They stopped at markets to store beautiful embroidery, fabrics and other beautiful things. From this they made their first own bags. When they were back in Ibiza they parked their van on the beach of Benirras from where they sold the stuff from Morocco. Every Sunday the van was in the same place and this was their first store. The family then got a permanent stall on the famous Las Dalias hippie market. Several trips followed and the family was always inspired by new cultures and by their age-old techniques and crafts, from which new designs progressed.
Fashion shows, magazines & parties
World Family Ibiza became a well-known label. The family organized a fashion show at Paris Fashion Week and were mentioned in various fashion magazines. World Family Ibiza grew further and was also inspired by music. They also founded their own party: Namaste. At this party in the gardens of Las Dalias people of all ages, cultures and backgrounds come together to dance and enjoy. Of course the parties are beautifully styled and decorated.
