ARTISANS X RV74
Marrakech is 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 offers us on a platter, there is always more behind it. Marrakech is infinite, a new workshop always appears, a new craftsman, an inheritance turned into 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 work techniques have not changed and have been passed down from father to son, the best kept family secrets.
On the way to the Atlas Mountains, a humble village hides where a small community of women hand-crochet hanging lamps. Crochet is a craft handed down from generation to generation among its locals. They typically crochet blankets and suits for their own use, as well as sculls caps, called taqiyah , worn by many Moroccan men.
To convey their culture, the sculptural forms of the Malika pendants are inspired by objects used in Moroccan daily life, such as tagines, baskets and jars.
Each lamp is handwoven from 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, work magic with their compositions, playing with color and different sizes, and with their pieces they transport you to a sunset at Place des Épices.
The French Clémence Bosredon presents The Marrakechoise, a sculptural work carved on raw blocks of travertine marble, to give way to a collection of organic furniture. Dining, center 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 craft techniques in Moroccan culture, is also the protagonist in this collection. So simple and so beautiful, in black and white. They are in the development process and very soon they will arrive exclusively at RV74.
Laurence Leenaert Belgian by birth living in Marrakech, was the forerunner of a lifestyle, a chaotic universe, full of color with a certain Picassian influence, where wool, leather, ceramics, natural dyes and all the local raw materials brought to another dimension. They are already in RV74.
