The line ‘at once traditional and modern’ embodies everything that is Souq. Located in Seminyak Bali, Souq is a beautiful and sophisticated space with an in house café and boutique.
At Once Traditional and Modern. Beginnings
Australian owners Sophie Gargett and Peter Kemp bring together a combination of 50 years travel throughout Asia to deliver a concept store that merges traditional crafts and texiles with a modern edge. Combining Peter’s background in design and Sophie’s eye for aesthetics, the partnership delivers a simply stunning collection of fashion, homewares and a gorgeous organic café to sit and enjoy the cool ‘island urban’ vibe.
Integrity of design and quality is of high priority for Souq. Every piece, every collection and every dish served in the café is personally selected, evaluated and sourced, resulting in ethical quality that is second to none.
This blog post features some of the stunning pieces from inhouse brand Mianliao.
Souq Boutique. In-store and Online
Feature in-house brand Mianliao (mee-ahn’lee-ow) is Mandarin for fabric. Cool silks, linens and cottons dominate this collection which is perfect for resort living and life in the sun. Not your traditional “resort” wear, the Mianliao label is more urban in styling. It is at once traditional and modern.
Souq accessories are a perfect match to the edgy outfits available. From oversized boho star earrings, handcrafted in Bali by local artisans, to snake print leather slides there is so much on offer as a gift or something for yourself.
In-store also showcases a stunning collection of locally manufactured homewares. Everything from cushions to glasswear and furniture. Bespoke furniture and design services are also available.
Coffee can make or break an experience for me. Souq hosts Toby’s Estate Coffee in their organic café. This was an initial drawcard for me and it didn’t disappoint.
Following the beliefs of integrity, quality and compassion, everything created in the Souq café is sourced from local farmers and producers to encourage sustainability, respect animal welfare and also for good health.
Well known for fresh baked cakes, including organic carrot cake, the café has a great menu including organic salads, toasted sandwiches and pies!
The café is set within the boutique, so the atmosphere is open, communal and creative. A great place to sit and watch.
