My strongest emotions arose with the discovery, a few years ago, of the amazing creativity displayed in the “Boucharouites” carpets, made of pieces of cloth, and recently of the “Zindeks”, embroidered on wefts made out of recycled plastic rice bags.
Since that time, patiently and passionately, I haven’t stopped collecting the most beautiful pieces of these anonymous women, true artists without even knowing it.
It is this unique collection, “the Berber Collection”, product of a rigorous selection, which I wish to share with you today through this website, as well as exhibitions in Europe and the United States. If these works of art have been able to move and inspire me, I am certain they will enchant and seduce you too.
