The work of the local Moroccan woods, Atlas Mountain range woods, known for their very characteristic scents, testifies to the great artistic skill of Moroccan craftsmen in handling this noble material, whether to create art objects (abstract, painting, miniature) of decorative objects (burl wood coffee table, chests, lamps), or for Moroccan interior design (Moroccan headboard, Moroccan lounges, Moucharabiehs, entrance doors, royal niches, ceilings).
Purists work these woods especially to provide useful everyday use either outside the home (agriculture, transport), inside (handmade furniture, wood jewelry box, skewers, vases, cups, trays, handmade knife), or even some accessories (wood jewelry).
Others highlight the nobility of cedar, walnut, olive, oak, or even Thuya (thuja tree). Carved, inlaid, chiseled, openwork, marquetry or even painted in warm colors, the wood is ready to receive the creativity of marquetry craftsmen, the art carpenter, and the cabinet makers, who are inspired by traditional geometric patterns (development of stars or Berber signs), patterns intertwined florals of oriental inspiration, the richness of Arabic calligraphy and above all motifs that spontaneously came out of their imagination and their cultural accumulation.
More worldwide, a lot of people make it like a hobby, but in Morocco, it's a branch of the Moroccan art tree and we use it to create de small pieces of Moucharabieh, just to know all the different Moroccan wood are nice in turning work (bowls, cups, pen…)
Be sure of all our Moroccan artwork are handmade with love.
