Lailat al Eid (on the eve of Eid), I took the boys to visit the newly opened F2o shop in Burj Jassem. I needed some cool T-shirts for them, but not any T-shirts, cool T-shirts which
I know I'll only find at F2o!
First, what is F2o?
F2o is a Kuwaiti based business started by cartoonist Fatma Fawzi AlOthman (adorable lady). It provides for its clients original cartoon illustrations, ready made T-shirts and accessories, cartoon Logos and mascots, and custom cartoon illustrations.
Fatima recounted to me how she started, from her love of coloring as a child, and the encouragement of her parents in this craft, to the business which she started from this wonderful obsession. I applaud and admire her for it! This is a great example of what is ambition, commitment and following your dream is. Mashallah!!
What I love about F2o is it has this traditional Kuwaiti feel to it. I first bought them through Venyooo.com and posted
about them previously Here!
Now there is a shop where I can browse as much
as I like and try on the t-shirts.
So yes… lailat al Eid I took my two little scamps and we headed to Burj Jassem. The shop was so delightful! Everywhere I look there were illustrations and posters, and collectibles from the artist life.
Honestly, I couldn't take in everything that day. Abdulaziz and Ahmed decided to act up when we were there and fooling around. I was too worried they'd break something. I really need a second visit soon, and alone.
I wish her all the best of luck and success! And I highly recommend you stop by the shop.

I love those tumblers. I got two of them,
one for me and the other for Fahad.
