"When I think of Morocco, I feel it's red warm earth running through my fingers, knowing this is where my hands belong. This is where my hands unfold their destiny."
Zaid Charkaoui & Samira Mahboub

TEAM: 2 founders + 35 artisans.
LOCATION: Berlin & Atlas Mountains, Morocco.
MATERIALS: Local organic wool.

Although we love colors and geometric Amazigh symbols & patterns, we equally are into our simple Bin Ourain Rugs. Bin Ourain is known as the Mother of the Amazigh rugs which are classic masterpieces."
