RUGGED UP: MARR-KETT

Collective Hub - - HABITAT -

Marr-Kett’s By­ron Bay and on­line store is a mecca for rug ad­dicts and lovers of the undis­cov­ered.

In­spired by their trav­els, Sally and Rich bring to­gether a melt­ing pot of worldly trea­sures, ar­ti­san-crafted pieces and smaller in­de­pen­dent brands from around the globe.

Spe­cial­is­ing in vin­tage Moroc­can rugs, the shop com­prises care­fully cu­rated pieces that re­flect their own unique eclec­tic style.

The founders’ back­grounds are as colour­ful as their prod­ucts. Sally is a London fash­ion grad­u­ate with Ro­mani gypsy roots. She’s also the grand­daugh­ter of a milliner and tai­lor. Mean­while, Rich fronted a trav­el­ling stunt show and is a Guin­ness World Record holder (yes, you read right).

Work­ing with ar­ti­sans in var­i­ous coun­tries around the world, they’re pas­sion­ate about fair trade and the ar­ti­sans they work with.
