The center of our beautiful Moroccan pouffes. Hand-cut, dyed and stitched. Our products do not come from haggled activities in the souks of Morocco. We stand behind our products as ethically made in small batches by Moroccan families.
Apart from having the freedom to express our designs straight through to our artisans and being able to custom make special pieces for you, we believe in working straight with our artisans to reduce their exploitation by middlemen.
Leather that is used to create our bags and pouffes are part of the animal that is consumed by our artisans and family in Morocco. The leather are then naturally dyed or oiled and finished off by hand sewing the embroideries and putting together all the pieces to make the pouffes.
Eyes on Wayuu
Wayuu is a native South American group from the La Guajira desert in Colombia and Venezuela. These Wayuu handicrafts are 100% handmade (using different weaving techniques) by the Wayuu Indigenous people.
Wayuu Mochilas are made by single or double thread weaving techniques and none are ever exactly the same, as each mochila is hand woven by only one Wayuu Indigenous person at one time.
Traditionally, Wayuu Indigenous people only weave using single thread which takes one Wayuu Indigenous person between 30-40 days to weave the mochila.
Double thread Mochilas take less time to produce then single thread mochilas, thus are more affordable yet still unique and beautiful.
By purchasing a genuine Wayuu product, you are supporting the longevity of an art and culture of the Wayuu people.
