Moroccan leather ottoman poufs down to $95 for wholesale orders!

I’ve just had an exciting pre Christmas email from my supplier in Morocco with some great news on the Moroccan leather ottoman poufs. They have decided to lower the price and as a result I’m happy to pass that saving onto my stockists and stores. The minimum wholesale amount will now be fifteen with a price of $95 for each pouf (ottomans are shipped flat in a calico cotton drawstring presentation bag). I’ll be updating my ‘Stock my Store’ profile over the next few weeks with this discounted new price but I wanted to let you be one of the first to know. All the wonderful colours you see below are available and if you are an, bricks and mortar or online store (based in Australia) interested in placing an order please feel free to email me: deborahbatchelor@me.com

I have one in every room of my house including the bathroom because you know someone always wants to chat about something when you are trying to relax!

Rock Ribbons Moroccan Pouf

Each one of these leather poufs are individually made by artisans in Morocco and ethically purchased using fair trade. After sourcing and buying the goat skin, it is cut and hand painted or dyed, then sent to the outskirt of Marrakech to be stitched and finished with silk embroidery by local Berber women to show off expert craftsmanship and a result that is durable and will stand the test of time. There are five people involved in making each pouf and it takes up one day to complete it.

They are all wonderfully unique, with subtle variations in the colour of the leather and will look beautiful and last for many years to come. Below are all the colours I have in store but if there is a colour you love and you don’t see it here, please send me a message and I’ll see what I can do!

Dulux Colour Forecast for 2013 :: Merge

1 Jan

Happy New Year Everyone! To start off the year on a colourful note, I’d like to share with you the Dulux Colour Forecast for 2013. Dulux have broken up their trends into six different colour movements. As a special event this week I’ll be sharing each of the six movements with you over the next five days. Each trend has been inspired by different cultural and environmental factors and explores how colour is moving around us, shifting and changing along with our world and all that is in it.

First up is: MERGE

We are in motion, movement is all around us – a blur of colour, a subtle shift of light, a merge of shadows. Movement is social change, the rise of a nation, the protest of people, the progress of the digital age. The Dulux Colour Forecast – Colour Movement, explores how colour is moving around us, shifting and changing along with our world and all that is in it.

Merge evokes nostalgia by merging past, present and future styles for something entirely new but familiar. Craftsmanship, reconciling analogue with digital & simple processes with innovative solutions inform the Merge trend.

Tradition is reflected in the palette where materials associated with craftsmanship are represented in hues of stone, timber and leather while natural dying processes inspire red hues and orange based pinks.

Exciting happenings just around the corner

26 Dec

I have some very exciting news to share with you about what ‘Rock Ribbons’ has planned for early in the year!

As you know up until now everything in both my Etsy and online store has been designed and handmade by yours truly but in 2013 things will be changing ever so slightly! You’ll still be able to purchase all your ‘Rock Ribbons’ favourites in both online stores. But I’ll be expanding out the brand to include a few of my very favourite finds, that I know you’ll love (as much as I do) from artisan and fine crafts people in Turkey and Morocco.

Those of you that know me personally, know that I have a real passion and  interest in Persian, Moorish and Ottoman art, craft and design. I have been searching tirelessly for the right craftspeople to ethically source and work together with ‘Rock Ribbons’  to showcase their beautiful handmade objects.

From early next year (2013) I will be including two new product lines that are tried and tested during my world travels and in my own home. Beautiful natural and versatile, 100% cotton handwoven pestemal hammam towels which are handwoven and dyed with natural plant dyes and the colourful hand stitched long lasting Moroccan leather pouf/ottoman.

I’m very excited about the craftspeople I’ll be working with and having both these great products in store. The pestemal hammam towels will be available in January 2013. The moroccan leather poufs will be coming early 2013 and I am going to try something very new (for me) called crowd funding. This is where I might need your help (please and thank you), I will be launching a ‘Pozible’ campaign in January in order to create funds to purchase a larger wholesale order of the leather poufs from my trusted agent and skilled artisans contacts in Fez.

I’ll be posting more ‘Pozible’ campaign details closer to the date and over next few weeks and I’ll be explaining to you why I think these two products are so great!
