A classic palm placemat with a cheerful fringe, this piece adds a dose of casual sunshine to any table.
Palm fiber is a staple raw material from Morocco which achieves its golden hue and tensile strength from the sun. The freshly-cut palm leaves turn from green to gold as they’re sun dried for several days, and are then braided into strips which can then be woven. Raffia, from the raffia palm, is also sun-dried for texture and color, but left in thinner strips to be used as string or twine.
Our partner runs a very small co-op in Rabat, located in a craft marketplace known for pottery and basketwork. He inherited the tradition from his father, and now works with a team of 5 colleagues. Every step of their work is done by hand: harvesting, processing, and weaving the material into everyday art objects.
Not all rugs are created equally. Ours are woven with traditional and innovative techniques, sustainable fibers, and no superfluous markups. We believe that buying a high-quality rug should be smooth, transparent, and affordable. We feel the same about textiles, furniture, and accessories, all of which are created with integrity and attention to detail.
