This Summer's vintage collection is full of earthy tribal treasures.
It's been such a joy being able to collaborate in person again this year with our artisan partners, long time suppliers and friends. Over the last few months we've been pulling together this unique collection of vintage pieces, and found some gorgeous shoot locations to show off these treasures as they should be seen - under the Moroccan sun.
This year's vintage collection focuses on some beautiful examples of the old style weaving techniques from Taznakht - a town in the Ouarzazate region of the Atlas Mountains known for it's high quality artisan weaving and textiles.
Some gorgeously aged soft red, ochre and terracotta toned vintage runners, kilims and flat weaves from Boujaad and the Haouz region around Marrakech.
And some really special old style Beni Ourains and Marmoucha tribe neutrals.
The cushion collection this year is full of earthy pillows and floor cushions made from re-purposed vintage wool blankets, traditional carpets and kilims. Made for mixing and matching with the rug collection, each cushion is a one-of-a-kind item, handmade here in Marrakech.
As with all our rugs - each piece is completely unique. Mostly aged between 30 - 80 years old, our vintage pieces are carefully restored and hand repaired in traditional methods so as to best suit the original materials, natural dyes and weaving style. With the occasional newer made piece thrown in the mix.
Our mailing list will be the first to know as the new collection arrives into Australia, due to arrive in October - so make sure you've signed up for updates!
I hope you'll love this year's vintage collection as much as I've loved curating it.
With love from Morocco
