Features + Benefits
- This Moroccan pillow series is a collaboration between our endlessly creative sales representative Judith Brock, and our co-owner Jessie Lyon.

This collection is an exploration of the world of ancient Moroccan craft and modern design.

Q: How is a Pokoloko Moroccan Pillow made?
Our Moroccan collection is made by Moroccan artisans trained in the highly-skilled art form of pedal-powered wooden loom weaving. This is an ancient art practice in Morocco that still exists today. These artisans use pure cotton yarns. We collaborate with these artisans to create modern designs fused with their artisanal traditions.
Q: What is a pedal-powered loom?
A pedal-powered loom is a loom that is powered by an artisan's two feet moving wooden pedals that control a weaving loom located above the pedals. As the artisan moves their feet, the loom above moves and knits pure cotton yarns into a soft, thick, and beautiful textile.
Q: How can I style the Pokoloko Moroccan collection?
Due to its neutral colour palette, you could style this collection in a variety of bedroom and living room settings. The mix and match pillows enhance a bedroom and couch. The blankets can be a bed cover and sofa throw.
