Travelling the globe sourcing handcrafted products for your home

Here are a few of the places and people we have met over the past three and a half years:

  • We’ve travelled to the highlands of Chiapas, Mexico, to work with a French run NGO, working with Mayan weavers using traditional backstrap loom weaving techniques and introducing new colour palettes and designs
  • Sourced baskets from Swazi NGO, Gone Rural, developed by contemporary designers and hand woven by women in rural communities.
  • Discovered beautiful copperware in Pune created by the last of the Tambat craftspeople
  • Teamed up with a family of three generations of weavers in Morocco
  • Shopped souks, markets and bazaars to bring you some unique vintage finds too.

 

Products imbued with the culture, traditions and skills of their makers

We’ve curated a collection of global accessories and gifts with a story behind them.  Products that will add interest, individuality, colour and pattern to a home be it modern global, a rustic retreat or a contemporary loft.

My experience with Maud interiors was exquisite from start to finish. Ordering products from the UK to the US can be a difficult task, however Maud interiors made my experience absolutely seamless and were a joy to work with.

Unlike other sites where the goods never seem quite as lovely as they look online these products do not disappoint. I found the company responsive, helpful and reliable. Maud interiors is now my go-to-site for gifts. Highly recommend the total experience.
Alex Wardle, London, UK
I found a lovely Moroccan pouf at Maud interiors. Having placed the order online I called Maud interiors to discuss delivery and some design questions. They were very helpful and are now helping me put the finishing touches to my new flat. Very pleased and pleasantly surprised by the level of support and personal touch provided.
