An exhibition of playfully decorated hats is currently on show at the gallery at Jardin des Biehn.

Based in the town of Rissani, on the edge of the Sahara Desert, Anne French says, "I love sitting at the market and watching everyone passing by."

Her latest creations are decorated with miniature objects that tell stories about the people of the region. "I was born in Meknes, and have lived in Rissani for 12 years. I work in any medium that takes my fancy."

The hats are available from €60 each.

Jardin des Biehn gallery is at 13, Akbat Sbaa, Douh, Fez Medina. Call +212(0)535 741 036

Anne French's inspiration was the souk at Rissani
