Table cloths are available on demand in any sizes. Made of 100% linen or 100% mercerized combed cotton by expert artisans. We have our own workshop in Marrakech.
Thread and needle but also over time
“Passementerie, an ancestral know-how in Morocco. The traditional clothes are tailor-made and adorned with handmade twisted yarns which form patterns and also replace seams. Men and women select their fabrics carefully before they have their garment made by the tailer, they also choose colors and trimmings styles carefully. All quality clothing is tailor-made and requires several weeks of work. In Morocco we take time …
Upon arrival in Marrakech at the end of the nineties, I developed a passion about trimmings. I still spend hours with artisans to understand their work. It is while ordering tailor made clothes for myself that the idea of transposing the trimmings on bed linen and table linen appeared obvious to me. The NIL model was born, that was in 1998 I think. ”
