    Where To Explore, Eat + Unwind In Vibrant Marrakesh

    The Tigmi Trading story began with a trip to Morocco with my partner 15 years ago. We fell in love with the nomadic rugs from the High Atlas Mountains. I was particularly drawn to their history, their abstract nature and the way they brought so much soul and character to contemporary spaces.

    Tigmi means ‘my home’ in the Berber dialect, and so it’s fitting that under this name we source and curate timeless, artisan made rugs, textiles, objects, lighting and art from Morocco to the Black Sea, and far flung places in between.

    As our business has grown, I have been able to indulge in various other passions, including working with artisans who share the same ethos, and whose pieces blur the line between art, beauty and function. I also believe strongly in the continuation of the ‘story’, and preserving traditional methods of production from generation to generation.

    We regularly return to Morocco to work with artisans and source wares, and I have come to find there are a few places and spaces that I always revisit. I hope you enjoy this little collection of highlights to inspire your own adventure!
