Sara Ouhaddou – one to watch!

Sara Ouhaddou is definitely someone to keep an eye on!   This young French Moroccan designer reinterprets the unique traditional techniques of Moroccan craftsmen and applies it to her contemporary designs. Her inspired debut collection of  tabourets, embroidered cushions and mosaic tiles is breathtaking!


Her hand-crafted ceramic tile collection is influenced by the delicate  mosaic tradition of Fez with its Spanish/Arabic roots. Each tile, of which there are five different patterns, is hand sculpted and unique as a result of the firing technique which creates a subtle difference between each one. We love her attention and commitment to handcrafted detail as well as the dynamic tension evoked through her bold use of space and depth.

The above image shows the complete series of six tabourets in the collection. The first and last in the series have embroidered cushions on clay bases. The second and fourth are metallic and red lacquered ceramic. The third and fifth tabourets incorporated beautifully embroidered recycled rubber.


Sara’s original use of recycled rubber tires, a material and ‘fabric’ in the creation of her beautiful tabourets and embroidered cushions reflects her deep commitment to ecological issues.

This photo is just so beautiful we wanted to share it with you to emphasize the culture, stories and historical threads Sara has ‘woven’ together to create such a strongly rooted yet completely contemporary design collection.
