The Anti-Atlas region of Morocco seems to be the only region in the world where henna is not only used to adorn the skin or to dye hair but also to decorate woollen textiles. Women weavers go on keeping this ancestral savoir-faire alive from generations to generations.

Handmade : Variation is to be expected, each piece differs in color, size, shape and decorations due to its handmade nature and natural dyes. memòri is about simplicity, imperfections, and embracing the "flaws".

Care instructions: Hand wash cold with wool detergent only when really necessary.
