The Zarabe Story
WHO ARE WE?

Our rugs are designed in Casablanca by selected artists and developed by skilled craftsmen from noble wool. Our ambition is to make superior quality rugs that will transform your interior space with beauty and distinguished character.

We hire the best artisans who take pride in sustaining an ancestral art and who express a true love for rug making. You can be assured that your rug is created by artisans who aspire to create artistic masterpieces that you can enjoy in your home for years to come. Our artisans come from different regions of Morocco including all imperial cities such as Marrakech, Rabat, Fez, and Meknes.
Together we advance craftsmanship and creativity to make better homes.
A native of Casablanca, Taha’s story began during his childhood when he developed a passion for rugs. His family’s rug making legacy was born a generation ago in Rabat where Taha’s aunts and uncles developed apprenticeship programs and built artisanal workshops for making authentic handmade Moroccan rugs.
Before launching Zarabe, Taha traveled and worked in different regions of the world including Europe, North America, and Sub-Saharan Africa where he learned about a variety of cultures. This enriching experience provided him with a blend of unique tastes for diversity that is reflected in Zarabe’s rugs today.
Also a native of Casablanca, Anas is a travel photographer who developed an affinity for interior design and decoration. His enthusiasm for rugs is showcased in his ability to capture mesmerizing moments beyond nature and in the cities he travels to. Anas creates an artistic canvas using rugs to enlarge a studio that stretches as far as the imagination.
How we Do it
Our artisans use only their hands, ancestral know-how, and incredible passion to create Moroccan rugs that inspire and uplift any interior space. Our rugs are manufactured without the use of machines which further exemplifies our respect for the environment. We use only natural wool and we source it in a sustainable way. Natural detergent is used to clean our rugs and we allow them to dry naturally in sunlight. To demonstrate our commitment to sustainability, we give back 1% of our revenues to saving our planet.

We combine an ancestral craftsmanship with contemporary artistic designs to rejuvenate the Moroccan rugs and bring them to our spaces in a new style.
