Our Story

 

Mushmina is a vibrant, global shopping experience. Home to our custom designed brand of handmade Moroccan accessories with cultural integrity and soul. A curated collection of unique ethical fashion and home goods for a travel chic, savvy shopper. 
 
Mushmina was founded by two sisters and their love of travel and passion to promote the stories of global artisans. Our mission is to create beautiful, inspired products that have cultural integrity and soul. We collaborate with over 150 artisans in Morocco to bring you our collection of plush fabric and leather handbags, hand-hammered mixed metal jewelry, handloom and hand-dyed scarves, and a selection of handmade carpets. We also bring you sustainable clothing from Mushmina and other brands we love. We are committed to the preservation of traditional craft and the employment of artisans globally. We are also committed to the empowerment of women. More then 80% of the artisans that work with Mushmina are women.     
                                      
Join us on this adventure... think blue water Mediterranean rooftops, trekking the High Atlas Mountains, lunch with the Tuaregs of the Sahara, feasting on couscous and dates, and a warm welcome from generous and talented people....
