Our mission begins with the artisans who create the wonderful products you see here on our website. Every purchase from The Artisan House helps to ensure the survival of awe-inspiring traditional crafts and the financial security of the gifted artisans. For these craftspeople, our store serves as a secure marketplace to preserve artistic heritage while nurturing its progress.
We live and work in Marrakech, where we have a store full of beautiful Berber rugs and textiles and a collection of other beautiful handcrafted items such as leather poufs, antique jewelry, ceramics and Thuya wood items.
We are wholesale suppliers to high-end interior designers, interior design stores, and homewares stores in New Zealand (where we are a major supplier) and elsewhere, including Norway, Denmark, Sweden, France, UK, USA, Canada, Australia, and Ireland.
Handwoven textiles, Pom Pom Blankets made on ancient wooden looms from cotton or pure wool; vintage, handwoven Boujaad Blankets, as they become available, and Handira (Moroccan Wedding Blankets) are also our specialties. We have partnerships with skilled weavers in Marrakech and Fes.
Our leather products are made from premium grade leather without the inherent smell of most other Moroccan leather products. We guarantee our products to be of the highest quality, as is befitting our clientele. We are very fortunate to have partnered with the largest and and most reputable leather workshop in Marrakech.
Not only do we have poufs and ottomans of various shapes and sizes, but also we have beautiful leather bags:Travel Bags, Satchels, Backpacks, Handbags, Shoulder Bags, Cross-Body Bags, Clutches, Purses, and Wallets, all beautifully handmade with close attention to detail and finishing touches.
In a world driven by monetary value, we are a business with a conscience and heart. We are absolutely ethical and abide by fair trade principles. We do not exploit those who are living in poverty and struggling to survive by paying them the lowest possible price in order to increase our bottom line.
Our artisans are our friends and family. We view ourselves as partners with our grass roots suppliers, our customers, our employees, our community, and our environment.
A percentage of the profits from our sales is donated to charitable organisations who work with underprivileged children. We also support an orphan children’s village just outside Marrakech run by SOS Children’s Villages International. https://www.sos-childrensvillages.org/where-we-help/africa/morocco
We believe that business is about relationships, first and foremost. We are interested in long term business relationships with our wholesale clientele based on mutual trust. We also like to build good relationships with our online customers. It is our mission to provide wholesale and online customers with highest quality handcrafted products from the Kingdom of Morocco that fulfill their wants and needs at the right price and with great customer service.
The natural and handmade nature of our product lines reflects our belief that the things we surround ourselves with should possess a soul, a history, and a purpose. They should help us connect to the world we share.
Let us introduce you to the Moroccan mystique, which is becoming a worldwide trend with interior decorators and fashion design gurus.
