Morocco has a rich and ancestral craft. Passed down from generation to generation with passion, the Arab and Berber traditions and know-how are constantly developing and sticking to our modern requirements. The materials used - wood, skin, iron, brass, glass, ceramics and of course fabrics - are transformed into everyday useful objects. Beautiful and timeless, they invite each other with charm and authenticity in each room of the house.

Moroccan rugs

The arrival of Berber carpets in our interiors several seasons ago now is undoubtedly the starting point of this general enthusiasm for Moroccan crafts. The Beni Ouarain, famous beige model with black graphic patterns, has been seen and reviewed in the decoration pages. However, we never tire of it! As pretty as it is comfortable (because it is made of 100% sheep wool), it fits with all styles and gives character - always in sobriety - to any room. We would be wrong to deprive ourselves of it! But he is not the only one to capsize the hearts of lovers of authenticity. The Kilim, this carpet with colorful shapes woven flat is also very trendy. Appreciated for its bohemian chic side, it fits perfectly into an interior that has adopted the Kinfolk movement. Ditto for the Azilal rugs made up of alternating a knotted line and one or two lines woven from virgin raw wool. A real masterpiece! Finally, the Boucherouite is also popular. A specialty of the Berber and very modest rural tribes of Morocco, it is woven by women from torn fabrics from recycled textiles. And to think that not too long ago, the merchants of the souks did not even offer them for sale!

Moroccan round baskets

Practical and ecological, the round Moroccan basket, hand woven in palm leaves, seems to have become an essential everyday accessory. We take it to the market, to the beach, we use it as a handbag, and above all, we invite it to the four corners of our interior as a real decorative element. It is also often hung in clusters and in different sizes, on a pretty blond wooden coat rack, that is presented in the entrance. You can also hang it on the handle of a door and fill it with a nice bouquet of dried flowers or use it in an XXL version in the children's room so that they can store their toys.

The Moroccan brass mirror

Rarely fixed alone on the wall, the small Moroccan brass mirror is also elevated to the rank of must have. Hammered by hand in Marrakech, it takes the form of drops, scales, triangles, eyes or simply comes in a round or square shape. For a highly decorative result, we do not hesitate for a second to multiply the different models so as to create a unique decor where poetry and delicacy are at the rendezvous.

The Beldi Moroccan stool

A great classic in Moroccan decoration, the traditional Beldi stool is used more as a small side table than as a seat. With its hand-woven straw and its eucalyptus or laurel wood, it has natural hues, which makes it easy to slip into any interior. In the living room, it can be used as a plant holder, while in an entry, it is enhanced with a nice basket to accommodate the keys of the whole family. In order to give it a more modern side, some Moroccan craftsmen have chosen to replace the straw in the seat with braided leather bands. Difficult not to fall under their spell!

Handira blankets

Worn on the shoulders by the Berber brides of the Atlas, the Handira blankets made of velvet-effect cotton and embroidered with sequins, are symbols of luck and fertility. Woven and sewn by hand by Moroccan women, they become carpets, bed throws or wall hangings in our interiors. They are also sometimes revisited and take the form of cushions or soft and refined poufs. If you are looking for a poetic decorative accessory steeped in history, I think you have found it!

Beldi glass

Blown by mouth since the 1940s, the Beldi glass is an iconic object of Morocco. Immediately recognizable thanks to its central relief, it was originally intended for serving tea. In 2013, however, it almost disappears after the closure of the last glassworks in Casablanca. Unable to resign himself to seeing this icon of Moroccan design disappear, the Beldi hotel group decided to build a new glassware with modern facilities within its walls. Made from recycled glass, it is now available in several sizes. That's good, we would see it on our table in a nice water glass, wouldn't you?
