GIVEAWAY | Win a Moroccan Berber cushion from Maud Interiors
At this time of year I always have an urge to pile on the layers, not only in my wardrobe, but at home too, digging out extra blankets and throws for the sofa and adding a woollen rug to my office floor to keep my toes warm while I'm working away.
It's no secret that I love Moroccan rugs - I've never been to Morocco but I've often thought a trip might be justified purely by my urge to buy one.
These beautiful textiles from the Souk collection by Maud Interiors are the latest Moroccan home accessories to catch my eye. The company was founded out of a love for travel and, as such, travel, different countries and other cultures are the leading force behind the products they offer.
"We seek out products handcrafted by artisans, often one of a kind items, which combine traditional skills with contemporary design," says Founder and Director Nicola Paisey. "Our current Souk collection is the result of a recent trip to Morocco where we found hand woven woollen pom pom blankets designed to withstand the cold in the High Atlas Mountains, eye-catching cushions combining silk screened images of Berber women and henna patterns with fragments of vintage fabrics and kelims and vibrant Berber bread baskets."
I'd love one of these black and white striped Pom Pom blankets for our bedroom - I'm not sure Albert whippet would be able to resist chewing on the pom poms though!
The collection also includes these Berber cushions by French artist Sylvie Pissard. Working with local seamstresses Sylvie uses a combination of textiles and techniques to create impactful, exotic one of a kind home accessories. Each cushion fuses elements of traditional Moroccan life; fabric from vintage kelims, screen printed traditional henna patterns and the image of a Berber woman. The oversized designs would make ideal floor cushions, or you could place one on the bed as an eye-catching statement piece.
