This hand woven hemp and cotton textile is a true evocation of a traditional flat weave textile found throughout the Mediterranean.
A mix of different coloured yarns are spun together to give the alluring look and luxurious feel of this fabric. A clean colour palette, good wearability and a small amount of lustre bring it right up to date.
The design is taken from the fabric MORO, and is interpreted with matt yarns using a "rope" stitch. Perfect for border details on accessories as well as the leading edge of curtains and blinds.
MEKNES is inspired by the zelig tile borders of North Africa. Large scale interlocking shapes are embroidered in a combination of singing colours.
A geometric star stripe, which echoes the theme of the print design ZELIG, MORO is brought to life in a complex melange of different yarns. It has a slightly retro feel and works well with the textured weave BERBER.
This is a one-colour warp print where the vertical cotton yarns of the fabric are printed on BEFORE weaving. The fabric is then woven with horizontal linen weft yarns, which gives the soft look of this traditional craft.
Another traditional pattern of irregular zigzags takes on the character of ancient Moroccan carpets, particularly in chocolate and white.
The abstract motifs, particular to the villages in which this genre of rugs was woven, take on a modern quality with areas of graphic details rendered with soft watercolours in saturated colours.
A stylised brick or star motif, a common part of the vocabulary of hand woven rugs, is printed on a textured linen mix ground: This gives a richness to the geometric motifs.
Named for the traditional ceramic tiles of Northern Africa, ZELIG is a fresh and crisp interpretation of a centuries old craft. This fabric is printed on a white cotton twill which enhances the modern, tailored feel.
