Estonia is home to a lively and diverse design scene. The colourful fashions of London-based Estonian designer Roberta Einer have been worn by celebrities like Rihanna and Lady Gaga. At the historical Kau Manor, Roberta showed Mustafa how to embroider his own pair of sneakers inspired by her signature style. Mustafa’s custom footwear featured blue, black and white – the colours of the Estonian flag, serving as a souvenir of his visit. What else will he remember Estonia for? Doing a photoshoot on a medieval rooftop, practicing yoga on a stand-up paddleboard and foraging for lunch were pretty special experiences too. And bread. In all his travels, Mustafa said Estonia has “the best bread I’ve ever seen”.
