A piece from our Moroccan rug collection DAR YOUK: Dar meaning 'home' in Arabic and Youk meaning 'one' in Tamazight.
El Youk means 'the one' in Tamazight - it represents all the natural shades of wool woven in an irregular checkerboard pattern, and is made from¬†all-natural, hand processed wool with minimal human and environmental impact.
It has been made by the hands of master weavers atop of the Ain Leuh Spring in the Atlas Mountains through a cooperative of women, where the action of weaving is part of a complex chain of ancient cultural practices.
DAR YOUK is symbolic of the Ain Leuh Cooperative, which serves as a second home for the weavers and ensures sustainable practices, fair and equitable payments for the female artisans, in turn supporting their families and communities.
Through the creation of DAR YOUK it was important for us to work closely with the weavers, who often we know little about, and to acknowledge and give reverence to the women who created this collection. They are: Nina Gilbert, Khadouj Ouchekak, Hjaou Ammraoui, El Hachima Douiri, Khadija El Aabdi, Fatima Abaraou, Mahma Bahoussem Rachia Ghenam & Fatima Balhoussaine.

Like most things, our pieces require regular maintenance in order to last as long as possible. This includes regular vacuuming, rotation and periodic professional cleaning. As most of our carpets are made from premium quality wool, one of the best ways to refresh your carpet is to hang it outside on a sunny day in the fresh breeze.
In the case of a stain it is best to spot clean to and remove stain with a moist towel of warm water immediately. Do not let the stain dry. Lift as much as possible without rubbing. Always check for colour fastness prior by testing a small patch.
Professional cleaning should only be done off-site - avoid in-house services. We advise for a proper clean to consult a trained professional in a controlled environment.
If you have purchased the rug from us locally we include a complimentary cleaning within 12 months of your purchase, just drop it into the studio and we will have it back to you within 7 days.
