Beauty in Stillness
As the world stands still in the wake of COVID-19, it is easy to be overwhelmed by all that is happening around us. Here in Morocco, we have been under kingdom-mandated quarantine since March 20th. As people around the world have been similarly isolated, we have all been confronted with the same reality: stillness. This season is marked by fear and uncertainty, yet there are many reasons to remain hopeful; the love of our families, the break from our hectic schedules, and the time to rest all provide ways for us to cling to joy in this dark time.
With all non-essential work cancelled in our country, the working class has certainly been affected. We have been forced to pause production as we obey the rules that have been set in place. However, this time has brought our team at Illuminate Collective closer than ever. We have had the opportunity to continue supporting our weavers financially as they navigate this pandemic. We remain committed to working and partnering with our Illuminate family as we fight together to resist this global phenomenon, and we believe that through cooperation and resiliency, a brighter future can be forged. While our looms may be empty, we will continue to use this time building our vision and caring for our team.
Commitment to our Customers
While we have been forced to halt our weaving, we are still able to send out our finished products within the quarantine restrictions. This is a huge blessing and opportunity to continue providing you, our customers, with the joy that comes from these beautiful pieces of art. We are also currently running a 35% off sale on all of our inventory to make our rugs even more accessible during this time. Now is the perfect time to find a rug to bring into your home. In fact, there is no better way to bring warmth and life into your self-isolation than by laying down a soulful piece of Moroccan handiwork onto that empty space in your house!
