These beautiful lengths of fabric are tradionally worn by Berber women in the south of Morocco. Many are created and sourced from Mauritania. I took this photo in the Sahara desert, where I was staying.

About Artofvintagesouk

Sales 978
On Etsy since 2012

Welcome to Art of Vintage Souk!

Art of Vintage Souk is an independent online business based in Wales, UK.
I am a fashion, costume and textile designer, and I have been travelling to Morocco for many years sourcing and collecting old vintage rugs, textiles, and jewellery.
My love of textiles and travel has more recently taken me to Rajasthan in India to include some of India's beautiful vintage textiles
I work in collaboration with a small team of artisans in Morocco and India producing some of my own custom made designs using traditional crafting skills and natural materials of leather, wool, cotton, and silk.

I aim to offer some of the amazing Moroccan vintage handcrafted textiles that I find on my travels, buying from the locals in the cities or in some of the more remote areas. Moroccan design has a richness of colour, pattern and texture which can be added to the home, using rugs, kelims and textiles.... cushions, throws, emboidered fabrics, and other Moroccan accessories. I hope to be able to show how Moroccan design can be included in our own homes to achieve an exotic and eclectic style.
