I have a knack for making friends while shopping. What can I say, my passion for cool stores shows through? Come in: Ali-who happens to have the coolest of the Moroccan carpet shop (and this is here! In Sacramento!), KECHMARA. Ali was the one who lent me the lanterns and the carpet that set the stage for my 30th birthday party last fall. And then told me that I had no right to throw another party with his rugs unless he could set it up (ha!) (I had the Kilim on the wrong side, oops!) – so we have another part currently in planning mode and Ali will help with setting up this time.
Ali spends 6 weeks a year in Morocco sourcing the best selection of Azilal and Beni Ouran rug that I have seen-so many color and these rare vintage finds. I really spend hours hanging out in his warehouse ooh’ing and ahh’ing on everything and get him to disassemble his carpets. It has such a taste that we are at the point now, where he just set some pillows and side blankets for me that he says I just had. Or at least see before they left. He doesn’t like to have his picture taken, but I begged and volunteered to help him sew a lot of pillows in exchange for this feature. So you guys better be reconnaissants-j’ai put my sewing skills to work for you! That’s a character!
