Hamimi offers a fresh take on Moroccan design, capturing the country’s exotic culture and honouring traditional craftsmanship.
Established in 2010, Hamimi is a brother and sister business, with Alex based in Brisbane and Rebecca on the ground in Marrakech, where she oversees the team of skilled artisans that bring our designs to life.
Daily life in Marrakech provides an endless source of creative inspiration – it’s a place where you can have one foot in the very distant past and the other seemingly in the future. Our designs embrace the old and the new, combining traditional materials and techniques with a contemporary sensibility.
Our designs begin with as park of inspiration and then develop with sketchpad, pencil, paint palate,material swatches and coffee at hand. We appreciate texture and are not afraid of using colour. We favour the use of natural materials and simple shapes. We like to mix old and new, traditional and modern to produce items of contemporary yet timeless appeal.
Our simple aim is to design products that we would love to wear ourselves or adorne our own homes.
In this age of mass production, we instead focus on handcrafting our products in the traditional artisan way.
Each product is invested with human touch – made by hand with heart.
Our crochet lights, jewellery and handbags are handmade by a small community of women in a village just outside Marrakech. The beautiful refined results are a testament to the pride these women take in the quality of their work. By partnering with these women we aim to help keep their traditional skills alive and create a brighter future for them and their families. By supporting with trade, not aid, the positive impact is sustainable.
