Located in Morocco, Chabi Chic works with talented artisans with a mission of protecting Moroccan culture, preserving beautiful traditions and techniques, and improving the quality of the artisans’ lives. Chabi Chic’s story began in Marrakesh with a former architect and a former home decorator. Their goals include creating high quality and handmade home goods that are ethically made from natural materials; benefiting the artisans’ livelihoods, creativity, and vast skill sets; and sharing the traditions nationally and globally.
Chabi Chic works with approximately 18 artisans and suppliers between the ages of 20 to 60. While some of the artisans, such as those who work on pottery and ceramics, are based out of workshops, some also work out of their homes. They work hard to preserve a tradition that has been passed down through generations and that is facing competition in today’s environment. Chabi Chic is part of the Marrakesh Cultural and Creative Industries, a program started by the United Nations. Through this program, Chabi Chic is given access to funds for the artisans looking to improve their skill sets and sell their work. Each purchase of the products in this collection empowers these skilled artisans and their families.
Our furniture collection from Morocco is handmade by artisans at Chabi Chic. Olive wood, lemon wood, and walnut wood are used by the artisans who hand-sculpt these fair trade products. They work with the wood from dry lands, and they do not harm any of the trees. The stools and benches are made by artisans preserving beautiful cultural traditions of Morocco.
Morocco, or the Kingdom of Morocco, is a North African country with a fusion of cultural heritage, including Arab, Berber, European, and African influences, according to the BBC. Located along the Strait of Gibraltar, it is the only country in Africa to have coastlines along both the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. The highest population density is along both coasts, while some dense segments are spread out through the Atlas Mountains.
