About Kantara: Moroccan Rugs
Kantara is a Los Angeles design business specializing in fair trade Moroccan rugs and pillows. We pride ourself on our long-standing relationship with Moroccan women weavers which allows us to custom design rugs to size and color preferences, source vintage rugs, and curate an ethical collection of Moroccan rugs and pillows. Kantara, meaning “bridge” in Arabic, is deeply rooted in its commitment to fair trade principles.
What core values do you bring to your business?
Since 2008, we have worked directly with the same weaving cooperatives in rural Morocco. Thanks to our longstanding relationship with these highly skilled Moroccan artisans, we are able to curate and design rugs and pillows that both preserve the ancient weaving traditions and add a modern touch. In our relationships we value fair trade principles such as transparency and accountability, supporting good working conditions, and fair payment for the artisans.
