Moroccan carpets are always woven by woman. Produced for the own need they are expression of the live, struggle or joy of the woman weaving them. They are named by the region or the place they come from or by the name of the tribe the waver comes from. 

Originally these carpets were made for personal and domestic use by the different ethnic groups of mainly Berber, rarely Arabic, origin within Morocco, most of whom were semi-nomadic. The carpets were normally used as bedding or blankets and were made by the women for their own families, who passed weaving techniques down through the generations.

The way in which these carpets were woven made them easily adaptable to any climate: in the mountains, they are made with a high pile and are more loosely knotted so as to provide protection against the cold, whereas in warmer climes a lower pile height and a finer weave is employed.

In the early 20th century, Moroccan carpets fascinated artists such as Wassily Kandinsky and Le Corbusier and today bring images of Mark Rothko or Cy Twombly to mind. In other words, an enquiry into the Islamically influenced culture of North Africa in general and carpets from Morocco in particular leads us to the roots of European avant-garde art. 

Boucherouite : : An extraordinary trend in the last 30 years has been the production of carpets and blankets made with a mix of recycled fabrics like wool, cotton, polyester ete. Thin stripes of recycled fabrics and cloth can be bough per kilogram on each market. With these materials the women produce some extraordinary works.

(EN) Long time customers know that we lost our heart in Morocco some years ago. Ever since then see return to this beautiful country with its great hospitality and incredibly aesthetics. We love the clash of the minimalistic berber aesthetics and the opulent islamic culture. We love the contrast of the lively street live and the calm roads and gardens. Whenever we travel to Morocco we spend at least one day with our carpet dealer. He has an incredible collection of vintage moroccan carpets. On tree floors these beauties are pilling up the walls all nicely folded . So the day is spent unfolding, looking, chatting, drinking tea and of course negotiating.
While strolling the souks we often discover things that we think our customer would love, thus you once in a while finde beautiful baskets, candles or other goods in our souvenir du Maroc collection.

(DE) Langjährige Kunden wissen, dass wir vor einigen Jahren unser Herz an Marokko verloren haben. Seitdem zieht es uns immer wieder in dieses wunderschöne Land mit seiner großen Gastfreundschaft und unglaublichen Ästhetik. Wir lieben das Aufeinandertreffen der minimalistischen Berber-Ästhetik und der opulenten islamischen Kultur. Wir lieben den Kontrast zwischen dem lebhaften Straßenleben und den ruhigen Straßen und Gärten. Wann immer wir nach Marokko reisen, verbringen wir mindestens einen Tag bei unserem Teppichhändler. Er hat eine unglaubliche Sammlung von alten marokkanischen Teppichen. Auf Baumstämmen türmen sich diese Schönheiten an den Wänden, alle schön gefaltet. So verbringen wir den Tag damit, sie zu entfalten, zu betrachten, zu plaudern, Tee zu trinken und natürlich zu verhandeln.
Beim Schlendern durch die Souks entdecken wir oft Dinge, von denen wir glauben, dass sie unseren Kunden gefallen würden. So finden Sie hin und wieder schöne Körbe, Kerzen oder andere Waren in unserer Souvenir du Maroc Kollektion.
