kilims at le souk

After this week’s post on the Holt-Garza collection at Heath, I’ve got colorful stripes on the brain. Whether it’s in clothing or home goods, I still kind of want stripes on everything. I’ve gotten better at restraining myself, but these new kilim pieces at Le Souk are making it hard. The blankets, throws and pillows are handmade in northern Africa by skilled craftsmen that Le Souk partners with. In addition to supporting these artisans, Le Souk also donates at least 5% of its profits to Women for Women, a group that helps women in war-torn regions rebuild their lives through job training, education and small business development. Click here to check out all of these new pieces (I love that woven lamp) at Le Souk and shop online. Thanks, Danielle! xo, grace

    These are exactly the same ones that we make in my homeland Algeria. I am a berber of the North (Kabylia).

    These rugs are made in Winter (never in summer time). I have two of them colored and 1 white with black stypes.

    Brides at there wedding always get at least one. It is a must…a tradition…

    Happy to see that they are IN.. :-) my culture is IN :-)

    Where can I buy these? I’ve looked all over the internet and can’t find a store.

  6. I love kilims. I have 2 of them in my apartment. I especially love the bright colors on these. Whenever a family member goes to Egypt (I have family there) someone brings one back it seems!
