Welcome to Kenza and Co, where each meticulously crafted rug tells a story steeped in tradition, and every thread weaves a connection from the heart of Morocco straight to your home. I am Begoña, and alongside my husband Momo, we are thrilled to take you on a journey through the rich tapestry of Berber rug making, a practice that transcends mere craftsmanship to embody our core values of ethical production, eco-friendliness, handmade authenticity, and fair trade.
Momo’s Legacy: A Living Connection to Berber Ancestry Momo’s veins pulse with the spirit of the Amazigh people, his lineage woven into the very fabric of the Berber community. His childhood memories are filled with the rhythmic dance of looms and the vibrant hues of natural dyes, as his family poured their hearts and souls into creating magnificent pieces of functional art. Their dedication to the craft is a legacy that Momo brings to Kenza and Co, ensuring that every rug we offer is imbued with generations of skill, passion, and tradition.
Crafting Connections: Our Family-Driven Cooperative Our journey in sharing these Berber rugs with the world is intricately linked with Momo’s family and our dedicated cooperative of artisan weavers in Morocco. This is not just a business endeavor; it is a family affair, a collective effort to preserve and promote the ancient art of Berber rug making. Our artisans are not just skilled craftsmen and women; they are storytellers, cultural guardians, and invaluable members of our extended family.
Ethical and Eco-Friendly: Our Commitment to Responsible Craftsmanship At Kenza and Co, our commitment goes beyond preserving tradition; we are devoted to ensuring that our production practices reflect our deep-rooted values of ethical craftsmanship and eco-friendliness. We prioritize the use of natural materials and dyes, minimizing our environmental impact and ensuring that our rugs are as kind to the earth as they are beautiful. Fair trade practices are at the heart of our operations, ensuring that our artisans are fairly compensated, and their work conditions are safe and supportive.
Handmade Artistry: Celebrating Unique Imperfections Every rug in our collection is a testament to the skill and dedication of our artisans. Handmade from start to finish, each piece is unique, with slight variations and imperfections that speak to the human touch behind its creation. These are not mass-produced items; they are works of art, each with its own story, character, and soul.
Fair Trade and Community Support: Giving Back to the Berber Community Our partnership with Momo’s family and our cooperative is built on principles of fairness, respect, and mutual support. By adhering to fair trade practices, we ensure that our artisans are not just contributors to our business, but respected members of a community that we are actively working to uplift and support.
