Morocco - the state in northwest Africa is one of the few countries that has not been in turmoil since the Arab Spring. But the price for political stability is high. The parties have little say. Politicians cannot ignore the king and his entourage.


In the 2nd century BC, Berber tribes settled in the area of ​​present-day Morocco. Today, about 45% of the population are Berbers and 44% are of Arab descent.
Approximately 35.7 million people live in the country, 98.7% of whom are Muslim. The highlights are the four magnificent royal cities of Fez, Marrakesh, Meknes and Rabat.

UNESCO World Heritage sites include the Medina (old town) of Fez, the Medina of Marrakesh with the Agdal Gardens and Menara Gardens and the Medina of Meknes. The good food (tajine), the wide range of pomegranates and cistus fruits, the narrow streets that meander through the old towns of the big cities and the colorful and lively markets and bazaars (souks) are what we particularly remember.

In the souks you can find carpets, silver jewelry, tiles, products made of copper and brass, baskets, shoes, bowls and boxes, and hats made of colorful straw. Leather goods are also a big market in Morocco - in Fes and Marrakech, entire neighborhoods are reserved for tanners. We personally are also big fans of the all-round wonder product argan oil.

From Morocco, Kikooni offers Berber carpets and cushions as well as colorful Berber leather bags.

We source our selection of products from Morocco from a family in el Kelaa de Sraghna, which is about 100 km from Marrakesh. The women of the family produce the carpets by hand in their own production facility, spending days on end - unique pieces of the highest quality.


and by purchasing a product from our Morocco collection, you are directly supporting our partner family from Morocco! We would like to continue working with the family, which consists of 8 people (+ children) living in a small, modest house in a suburb of Marrakesh. The whole extended family benefits from our joint support - and we want to encourage them, just like other families and productions, to pursue their country-specific traditional craftsmanship and to produce products with a "real" and unique value and a story.
