Eme Black’s story.
One of the projects that is remembered very fondly in Tamarit when we recall at the workshop our “greatest hits” during periods of break and amusement, is the sixth one, which was tasked to us on a very peculiar way, the course of it was even more singular.
Still without a brand or advertising structure present, the makeover projects came during that time through mouth to mouth, friend’s recommendation or just pedestrians that noticed some of the already made projects riding through the streets of Elche and catch the Tamarit logo and look up our contact number through the internet.
By the end of spring, a somalian guy named Eme (in short for a longer name that we would never know) reached us. He could barely speak any word in spanish, and his english was completely broken, only the one that he needed for his business and contacting clients. Eme saw our project #2 Dalúa riding on the city centre of Elche and wanted something similar on his importe Bonneville. Through phone pictures and basic guides, we managed to understand each other and to know what he wanted for his motorcycle. The most repeated word on our dragged conversations was “black black black!” when it was time to choose the colour for any of the parts.
