Workshops

Weaving.

Learning together.
Growing up as a berber in Northern Africa as a part of the Idaounidifi Tribe in Morocco, I sat by as a child and played with fistfuls of textiles as we watched the women from our village weave. I remember that I enjoyed being around them and I remember they would ask us to sit with the yarn as they worked. As a male was not allowed to learn, for the fact that weaving is only a feminine practice.

After 16 years in Marrakesh building my experience in hospitality and design I began to sell rugs. When I moved to California to open Soukie Modern with my Co-Founder I was finally able to see my obsession with rugs realized. Helping people to source and style traditional and vintage Moroccan Rugs eventually led to the next step, me becoming a weaver.

In 2019, I imported my family loom that my father made in the 1970’s for my mother. I started to weave, mixing traditional techniques and knots with more modern methods I was learning and that’s when the Berber Weaver collection began.

As clients came through the store and saw weaving in person, requests came in to learn. Eager to share, I worked to set up my first one-on-one lessons and eventual workshops and am now happy to offer them.
