“Beldi”

In Morocco, the term Beldi is an all pervasive one, and translates loosely to “country” in Moroccan Arabic. It can also be used to describe things that are traditional, authentic and classic. Beldi is more or less a way of life in Morocco, and implies a history infused with a sense of pride. Not all Moroccan wares can be described as Beldi however – this term is reserved for products of the everyday made using traditional handcrafted techniques.

One of our favourite Beldi objects is the beautiful utensils, hand carved from lemon wood. There is something so simple and raw about them – but as you can see, also something very beautiful.

Kulchi 'Beldi' UtensilsKulchi will be bringing in some of these special Beldi carvings very soon, so stay tuned.
