The Folks

Our table linens collection was created in collaboration with two women artisans from Fez old Medina. These master artisans work from the comfort of their homes, while taking care of their families. Khadija patiently embroiders each piece while Hasna adds the final border stitches.

The Tale

Fassie embroidery, in reference to the city of Fez, is an ancestral art that has been practiced by Moroccan women for centuries. It is passed down from generation to generation as mothers teach it to their daughters, and as embroidered fabrics have been the centerpiece of the trousseau of the bride since antiquity in Fassie families. This art is based on precision and patience as each piece is embroidered by hand using simply an embroidery hoop, needle and thimble.
