OUIVE (pronounced "weave") we offer a carefully curated collection of authentic handmade Moroccan rugs, poufs and pillows. All of our vintage Moroccan rugs are hand selected from hundreds of rugs during our sourcing trips to Morocco. We carefully choose pieces that are in excellent condition and are a unique representation of the various weaving techniques and motifs of individual Amazigh (Berber) tribes and regions where they are created.
Our custom mate-to-order rugs are also handmade in Morocco from 100% wool each taking several weeks to months to create. We partner directly with talented Amazigh weavers supplying them with high quality materials and supplies 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 village collectives. The culture of weaving in Morocco 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.
