Our Moroccan wool pots and plates are made in partnership with artisans living and working in the Atlas mountain region of Morocco. Our relationship with these makers has been established through the British Moroccan Society, a charity which helps create commercial partnerships to promote development and cultural exchange between Morocco and the United Kingdom.
What is this product made from?
Each pot and plate is made using locally sourced 100% wool.
Are the wool pots and plates eco-friendly?
All our pots and plates are made from two simple natural materials; reeds and wool. The wool is wrapped around the reeds and binds them together to create each unique hand-made piece. While we hope you love your basket or plate for many years to come you can be rest assured it is biodegradable and will never become permanent landfill.
How should I care for my wool pot/plate?
Your wool pot or plate should be kept dry to maintain its shape and strength.
Can I clean my wool pot/plate?
You may gently vacuum the surface of your bowl or plate using a small brush attachment on a low suction setting; to keep it dust and debris free.
How do I deter moths?
Moth breeding season in the UK is May - Oct so this is the time to be extra vigilant. Moths prefer dusty, food stained natural fibres and thrive in humid environments. Make sure you keep your home well ventilated to decrease humidity. Regularly vacuum the surface of your bowl or plate to keep the surface clean. You may want to very lightly mist the bowl/plate using a mix of water and a few drops of lavender essential oil and allow it to air-dry before placing any objects inside. Or you could place a small sachet of dried lavender or cedar wood balls inside the bowl.
