It all started with a coup de foudre in Morocco!
With an intoxicating, sensual blend of exotic tastes, sounds, aromas, colours, textures, patterns and people, it was love at first sight. Despite getting extremely lost in the heart of Marrakech medina, Maryam stumbled across a gem... the babouche souk.
Mesmerised she watched skillful artisans hand-making buttery-soft colourful leather 'slipper-like' shoes. Maryam was so excited. She bought her first pair of beautiful babouches straight from the maker.
This is where our story begins.... yalla! let's go!
bəˈbüsh | بابوش a flat, slipper-like style Moroccan leather shoe with an effortlessly elegant pointy toe.
Celebrating traditional Moroccan craftsmanship and modern British style, we have reworked the original 'slipper'.
Uniquely stylish and luxuriously comfy, our babouches are designed for life - any occasion, anywhere! Taking you effortlessly from home, to lunch in the city, to the beach and on holiday adventures!
In an age of same-same and a consumer world fuelled by an unsustainable addiction for the latest cheap, throwaway fashions, Maryam has created a unique lifestyle brand with real soul!
Inspired by discovering the slower way of Moroccan life, a love of travelling and hunting out original pieces, an appreciation of all things natural, the art of craftsmanship and the beauty of knowing who made your goods.
Maryam hopes that by celebrating originality and in-turn giving something back, she will inspire others to do the same.
Our babouches are born from the passionate collaboration of the creative talents of extraordinary people.
Hand-drawn designs, hand-picked leather, hand-embossed sole, individually hand-stitched shoes, handmade tassels, handcrafted organic cotton bag and hand-stamped tag, each pair is handmade with love!
"Let the beauty of what you love be what you do"! - Rumi

"Yalla! Let's go!"
"It really was love at first sight! So, I packed a few belongings and, following my heart, set off on a Moroccan adventure. And what an adventure! Life is beautiful when you let your soul lead the way!
Inspired by my incredibly spiritual journey, discovering a different way of living and following my dream of sharing my love with others, I created moor.
I invite you to step into our world. More than just a Moroccan-inspired brand, moor is a way of life! Yalla! Let's go!"
