Julia Green Brings Morocco To Australia In This New Textiles Collection!

Shopping

Since making the transition from pharmaceuticals to interiors (!) a decade ago, stylist Julia Green has visited Morocco numerous times, ever inspired by the colours and textures of North Africa.

But after more than ten years in the interiors biz, Julia’s latest trip has resulted in a new business venture. Moroccan Treasures is a collection of pieces she has sourced through the network of artisans she has met over many years of visits. This distinctive collection of textiles and homewares has just landed in Australia – and it’s available now via Greenhouse Interiors.

‘They are treasures looking to be buried in other people’s homes!’ Julia Green.

‘These are a few of my favourite things,’ says Julia simply. She’s talking about the pieces that make up Moroccan Treasures, a new homewares collection she has sourced for her homewares agency and online store, Greenhouse Interiors.

From colourful threaded rugs and hand stitched cushion covers, to raw and unglazed ladles that complement deep green ceramic tableware, the collection flows between colours, textures and function in an organic and easy way. It’s only when you look closer that you can see the complexity in each detailed piece.

While the rugs are the central items in this collection, textiles, earthenware and a small range of clothing accompany them in the colour-popping lineup. Each handmade piece has been sourced from Morocco, with a careful and considered approach to its maker and quality.

‘The people who make the items are […] incredible craftsmen and women,’ Julia explains. ‘They don’t think they are making anything miraculous, and probably find my enthusiasm amusing, but I drool every single stop I make.’

With a blazing love and admiration for the country she continues to return to, she cites her deep passion for colour as the connective thread running through this collection. ‘Each piece has a story or tells a story, and celebrates longheld craftsmanship,’ Julia explains. But she knows they will have a new story to tell with their next owner.  ‘They are treasures looking to be buried in other people’s homes!’
