oh how i've always loved the idea of sister cities.

two great places, joined over sea & sky by the idea of common cultural & commercial ties.
this new rikrak studio series explores 2 sister cities @ a time,
and some of the handmaking lovelies that they share!

what wonderfully fabled capital cities these two are!
so steeped in lore & history & great tales!
i can think of dozens of great stories that capture my imagination from both places... & such great handmaking traditions, too!

have you been to either of these fabulous capitals? i'd love to hear your own tales.i've loved seeing the fabulous sights in london, & look forward to exploring moscow one day.

does your city have an official twinned city/sister city?
