Our rugs are handmade in Morocco from 100% wool each taking several weeks to months to create. We partner directly with talented Amazigh (Berber) weavers supplying them with whatever they need and ensure they are paid fairly. This cuts out any reliance on middle-men merchants passing through their villages offering to buy rugs at too low cost to then reselling in the major cities across Morocco. Most of the women we work with weave at home while others work in local collectives with other weavers. It is a beautiful community of sisterhood and shared experience gathered around craft. By purchasing a made-to-order rug from us you are supporting fair pay and keeping the traditions of hand-making rugs alive as a viable way to earn a living for future generations.
All vintage rugs are as sold “as is” with the understanding that they are subject to normal wear consistent with age. All rugs are cleaned and repaired prior to shipping.
