Marra’kesh a Glimpse of Life in Morocco

June 16, 2017

Feel Good Friday

When traveling in Marrakesh, Morocco, Alyx walked past this family-owned fabric shop every day on her way into town.  She was intrigued by Marra’catching a glimpse into this Moroccan family’s life and each morning she watched as they hand-wove the fabric into vibrant works of art.

She found there was something particularly unique about the Moroccan s’tile

with its cera’mix and match…

of man-made and natural beauty.

And she wanted to carry a constant reminder of this beau-tea-ful country...

while sharing a piece of it with others too.  So she brought back that handwoven fabric from Marrakesh, Morocco for her line of Morocco totes:
