ARTISANS X RV74
Marrakech always vibrant and disturbing, a land of textures that invites you to open your eyes wide, because behind the obvious and what this chaotic city puts on a platter, behind it there is always more. Marrakech is infinite, a new workshop always appears, a new craftsman, an inheritance turned around in a new way of making art. We have been bringing part of this rich culture to our pieces for years. And today it is an honor to introduce you to our local artisans whose ancestral working techniques have not changed and have been passed down from father to son, the best kept family secrets.

Crochet is a handicraft handed down from generation to generation among its locals. They usually make crochet blankets and outfits for their own use, as well as beanies. sculls, called taqiyah, used by many Moroccan men.
To convey its culture, the sculptural forms of the Malika pendants are inspired by objects used in Moroccan everyday life, such as tajines, baskets and jars.
Each lamp is handwoven with silky viscose 'kitan' yarn, a fabric traditionally used to adorn elegant Moroccan kaftans. The color collection is inspired by the diversity of Morocco, from its earthy landscapes, tinkling cities, white coastal towns, aromatic spices and dark desert skies. Its creators Rebecca and Alex of Australian origin make magic with their compositions, they play with color and different measures and take you with their pieces to a sunset in the Place des Épices.

Dining, coffee or auxiliary tables represent the purity of Moroccan stones, in a series of unique pieces as imperfect and irregular as their own nature. Tadelak, probably one of the most deeply rooted artisan techniques in Moroccan culture, is also the protagonist in this collection. So simple and so beautiful, in black and white. They are in the process of development and will soon arrive exclusively at RV74.
