about the founder
Modern Myth is an exploration of my two great passions: textiles and design.
Weaving culture has always felt like home to me; as a child I had my own loom and I would weave contentedly for hours. In my early adult life, I became an avid traveler and wherever I went, I found myself drawn to weaving villages, enamored by the artisanal craft and slow pace of life. I visited Morocco for the first time in 2017, when I first met the Berber women weavers and fell madly in love with the incredible textiles they produce. While I had previously sourced textiles and handmade art to gift to friends and family, I knew then that I wanted to find a way to develop a deeper and more sustained connection with this community and their craft.
I've always been a visual person, when I walk into a room, I rearrange the space in my mind's eye, visualizing new colors, shapes, and textures. To further explore how the design of a space impacts the experience within it, I studied at the Heritage School of Interior Design. As a residential designer, creating beautiful spaces has become one of my most treasured art forms.
Modern Myth is the natural unfurling of these explorations into weaving cultures, textiles, and interior design. Through this project, I've sought to challenge and refine my own perspective on place, purpose, and belonging. I hope to share that experience with you, as we build beautiful spaces of belonging together.
Modern Myth supports independent artists and female cooperatives by purchasing directly from the makers, ensuring fair pay, safe working conditions, and the preservation of an ancient craft.
The Berber weavers are not just skilled craftswomen; they are storytellers, embedding the rich narratives of Morocco into every knot and thread. With an ancestral heritage dating back centuries, these artisans are the guardians of a legacy that continues to thrive in the intricate patterns and vibrant hues of their creations.
Beyond the artistry, our commitment to sustainability is woven into the fabric of each rug. Embracing eco-friendly practices, our artisans utilize locally-sourced materials and dyes, ensuring a minimal environmental footprint.
The art of weaving is not merely a skill; it's a lifeline that sustains families, fosters education, and preserves the essence of Moroccan identity. By choosing a rug from Modern Myth, you become a part of a movement to preserve cultural heritage and empower communities.
