I just love Autumn – after all the summer months in the garden it’s the perfect time to cosy up your home ready for the winter ahead. I have been looking for a beautiful black and white wool rug for some time now. I really wanted a handweaved Moroccan rug but with so much choice and so many factory made I didn’t know which to choose. Then I finally discovered a wonderful rug business called Sukhi .
Sukhi invest and care about the local communities where their rugs are made to ensure the women behind them are in well paid jobs and have the chance of a career outside of home. Each one is handmade using plush sheepswool to give them a super soft finish
that feels just amazing under foot.
Here is a video to see more about how each Sukhi handweaved Moroccan rug is made.
The design I chose is a Beni Ourain rug and production time was around 3 months. Prices start from around 271$ which is well worth it given the beautifully soft wool the rugs are made from, the fact they are handweaved and the joy of knowing you have a truly original item. I adore the simple design of our Naima berber rug which slots into any interior, even a French one, with such style.
I’m not sure which of the Sukhi lovely, talented and inspiring ladies made our particular rug and this is but a few of them – but thank you all of you!
– There are so many reasons to buy direct from Artisans in Morocco.
– These mothers and wives are based deepin the Atlas Mountains.
– In buying a rug direct from them, you’re helping to sustain traditional crafts and help local people earn money for their talent.
– Sukhi rug makers are well paid and adore working together in teams of women to create beautiful rugs.
With beautiful fringing and thick, luxurious sheepswool, our rug has become a favourite place to lie down with a book, play, snooze and sink into in front of the woodburner.
Look at this cheeky little one moving in to enjoy the comfort!!!
Thank you Sukhi rugs, we now have a beautiful handweaved Moroccan rug that the whole family adores…even Wilbur the sausage dog x
