Kids in Style

Everyone loves a kaftan – they are perfect for throwing on in the heat. They cover you and keep you cool, are brilliantly colourful and are always easy to wear. They also come in all sizes, even miniature ones! We have long-admired Mini Maroc, a children’s clothing company with an ethical edge that was born out of many happy holidays to Morocco.

The Mini Maroc designs are very ‘mod-Maroc’, incorporating beautiful and intricate detail. Each item, inspired by the colours of Morocco and Berber prints, has been created by using organic fabrics and colourful silk braiding from Morocco. You can get inspired and shop for the new collection here.

Colourful Boucherouite Rugs from Morocco

Post by Melanie Haddad of El Ramla Hamra

I love neutrals, whites and blacks but sometimes you also need some colour in your life. thats why I love the Moroccan Boucherouite rugs.

The rugs are made from recycled materials such as cotton, nylon and wool textiles. Each rug has a beautiful unique pattern. For our shop El Ramla Hamra we have specially selected some lovely vintage boucherouite rugs.

There are no rules for the boucherouite. They are all different in colours and patterns. Some with lovely pastels and some with bright colours. These days new rugs are made inspired by the boucherouite. But my preference goes out to the rug with a history. So we only select vintage rugs.

We have just taken new photos, include this boucherouite rugs, in collaboration with photographer and stylist Paulina Arcklin.
