We have been friends since our school days at Ascham, in Sydney. Our career paths have always involved Art, Design, Fashion and working creatively with people. We are now at a point in our lives that we have the freedom and the time to travel; and have created the Caravanserai Trading Company in order to take shoppers on a journey that will give them access to a rare selection of unusual, unique and exotic fair trade products. We only buy pieces that we love and would be happy to wear, or have in our own homes.
Our unique jewellery, leather and home decor pieces have been handcrafted by artisans from around Morocco. We have fallen in love with the rich colours of the Middle East, the dynamic contrasts, traditional patterns and the uniqueness of Moroccan decorations and décor.
Our dream is to travel regularly to meet with the artisans in the villages and the souks. Most of our products are unique, one off pieces, crafted by hand, by craftsmen whose lifelong skills have been passed down from generation to generation.
In chasing our dreams, we hope we can make an impact on the lives of others. Our dream was to find unique and beautiful things and make them available to those who share our love of the unusual and the exotic.
By introducing you to these lovely hand crafted pieces, we hope you will find yourself enticed by the range of products the Caravanserai Trading Company have selected and by doing so, know you have made a small difference in supporting the artisans of North Africa.
Many of the products from Morocco were handmade by the Berber and Tuareg tribes people, ensuring that each item is individual. We have some special pieces of Jewellery which were part of a bride's dowry, passed from mother to daughter. We are happy to purchase special requests for our customers. Caravanserai Trading Company can negotiate with our artisans to make to your requirements
