Tigmi Trading – Hidden Artisanal Treasures

Summertime always makes me dream of Moroccan inspired spaces. The colors, textiles, and the bohemian beauty of it all is perfect for outdoor parties. If you love artisanal treasures as much as I do, check out Tigmi Trading.

Tigmi Trading 1

Tigmi is Berber for ‘home’

Tigmi Trading is a global store that curates responsibly sourced hand made product from Morocco and around the world. We seek to unearth beautiful pieces that are unique in their workmanship and story, and are committed to supporting centuries of traditional methods of production by artisans around the world.

Enchanted by the mysticism and magical world of Morocco and drawn to the richness and history of the Berber culture and people, the journey began in the souks of Marrakesh.  The magic of the souk, the heat of the desert, the vastness of the landscape, the food, the smells and the incredible artistry which has been passed down through centuries. The excitement of unearthing the treasures within an Aladdin’s cave.
