Tuareg Woven Basket
(Based on 1 review)
Category: Home Décor/Home Accents

Using the leave of the doum palm, women of Niger’s Tuareg tribe weave this shallow basket using a method called poinĉon, after the French word for an awl or punch tool. This natural, ecological material is richly abundant in the Tuareg’s landscape and the products have always been used in their nomadic life.

Moroccan Selenite Votive
Moroccan Selenite Votive
(Based on 3 reviews)
Category: Home Décor/Home Accents

Selenite is a crystalline variety of gypsum, named after the Greek word for moon because of the belief that its transparency waxed and waned. Some believe that it clears the air of electrical pollution. Artisans in a village near Agadir, Morocco, on the Atlantic coast, carve locally mined selenite into this luminous, translucent votive holder. Please accept small variations in this natural material.

The tiny North African country of Tunisia on the Mediterranean coast is one of the world’s top 10 producers of olives. Almost than 7,000 square miles, more than 10 percent of the country’s land, is cultivated with olive trees. When the trees no longer bear fruit, their wood is harvested to make room for younger trees. The wood is very hard and durable, with a beautiful grain that makes it ideal for kitchenware and other highly decorative but functional items.
