Meet the artisans

In our new section we take you behind the scenes, to show you how some of the items we sell are made.  Most of the items we sell are hand made by craftsman in Morocco.

The items we sell are purchased from different parts of Morocco as certain areas have developed specialities in a particular field.  For example, Safi for ceramics, Fez for heavy detailed brass work, and Marrakech for ironwork.

We work with a Moroccan family, who have been exporting for three generations, have built up an extensive network of craftsmen with unparalleled skills, and don't use middle men.  The craftsmen are paid a fair price for their work, they recieve half of the money in advance, and the balance when they bring the completed items to the container.  This enables the artisans to stay independent, support their families, and produce beautiful items!

Artisans: Argan Oil

The production of argan oil, which is still mostly done by traditional methods, is very labour-intensive.  Each nut has to be cracked open to remove the kernels, and it is said that producing one litre of oil takes 20 hours' work.  Find out how argan oil is made.

Artisans: Ceramics

Ceramics from Safi

The process of making ceramics hasn't changed much in last several hundred years.  The kilns may now be fired with gas rather than wood, but the process is still hugely labour intensive.  Discover how these beautiful ceramics are created.

Artisans: Ironwork

Well away from the tourist trails, and tucked against the back walls of the medina in Marrakech, are the artisans working with iron.  Learn all about the Moroccan iron-smiths.
