Rue du Maroc was started by a group of close friends, some Moroccan and some in love with Morocco. After years of dreaming and traveling they decided to bundle their experience and put together a selection of some of the finest contemporary design Morocco has to offer.
Contemporary Moroccan design is little known to the world, but is a universe of surprising beauty.
Maybe we can explain it like this : If Scandinavian design is defined by function and Italian design by elegance, Moroccan design is defined by contrast.
Contrasts of colors, shapes and patterns, contrast between tradition and modernity, between the past and the future, contrast between Europe and Africa, between the ocean and the desert……
We try to show you a glimpse of all these beautifully blended contrasts on this webstore which was launched in the summer of 2014.
Rue du Maroc is based in Marrakesh from where our team travels all over the country to select the finest items they can find. We work together with young and talented designers all being inspired by Morocco and all trying to give a name and a face to contemporary Moroccan design. Some of our items our bought directly of the street, from the hands of a craftsman when we just find it impossible to resist.
We find it important to pay a fair price for the products we buy and all craftsmen and artisans are getting an honest earning from the items presented in our webstore.
Once selected all our products are sent to our European warehouse which is located in Brussels and from where we organise worldwide shipment.
We hope Morocco can seduce you with what it has to offer and we hope you enjoy going through our webstore.
Team Rue du Maroc
