Natural variations in size and color are inherent to all handwoven products
A lace-like weave spirals out from the center, reminiscent of handwoven fishing nets thrown off the coast of Essaouira.
Reed fiber is a staple and ubiquitous raw material from Morocco, which grows naturally in orchards and fields across the country alongside many other plants, almost like a weed. Its color changes depending on the season and how much sun it has gotten, so you’ll find there’s a range in shade even in one piece, from slightly green to golden yellow.
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.
