Morocco is an assault on the senses. It is a labyrinth of discoveries, souks, riads and gardens all hidden away waiting to be discovered. Get lost amongst the terracotta, saffron and pink hues of the medina and find respite in the lush green gardens. Morocco is a country proud of its crafts and artistry, it is an inspiring place to be and I hope to evoke a sense of the country with this collection.
The old sultans’ office in Le Jardin Secret, Marrakech. Hand-carved by local craftspeople, this door was created to match the previous door design from the archives. I loved this door so much I wanted to bring it to life through the products below.
Chabi Chic is a Moroccan lifestyle brand based in Marrakech. I came across their Medina store underneath Nomad restaurant and was immediately taken with their beautiful products.
Based in Marrakech, they work with local artisans and craftspeople in and around Marrakech who use age-old techniques to create modern and chic products. Each product is handmade using fine materials and high-quality finishes.
The brand started in 2013 and have expanded to 4 stores, 3 in the Medina and one at the Beldi Country club.
Soufiane Zarib is Moroccan rug heaven. Their main store is in an amazing Riad in the Marrakech Medina and is hidden behind a grand front door. Zarib is world-famous thanks to the quality of the rugs they stock. They specialise in vintage Berber rugs, large scale and modern luxury rugs.
Along with rugs they also create beautiful cushions and fabrics. Our sabra and mudcloth cushions are sourced from Zarib.
MAISON BEN YAMNA D’ART
Maison Ben Yamna is an artisan weaving workshop based in Fes. Their textiles are some of the softest silks, cashmere and wool I have come across. Our blankets and throws are hand-woven in the studio in Fes by craftspeople using traditional weaving techniques.
The vintage items in our store have been sourced from dealers in Marrakech and Fes. The pieces have been picked for their quality, uniqueness and for the interesting history that they have.
