MARR-KETT is based in beautiful Byron Bay, Australia and and brings to you a wonderful offering of carefully curated homewares and clothing specialising in pieces from Morocco along with celebrating local artists and makers. With Sallyanne Adjemian, the owner having over 19 years experience working with Morocco, textiles and within design, her expert team brings you authentic artisan made pieces, sourced with care and produced fairly with our artisan partners.
MARR-KETT was born from a sense of adventure, a love of travel, textiles and antiques and a constant hunger for the unusual, exotic and one-of-a-kind. With the ethos that our homes should be as unique as we are and be a reflection of ourselves and who we strive to be. A beautiful balance between practicality and adoration.
The name MARR-KETT originates from a love affair with Morocco spanning almost 20 years, in particular Marrakech and the excitement and vibrancy of the markets/souks and the Atlas Mountains.
As a child Sally grew up traveling across the world and would sit with her artist mother and grandmother reading tea leaves, painting and creating. Her Romany Gypsy roots influencing her childhood and her milliner and tailor great grandparents influencing her future. After graduating with a 1st class honours degree in Fashion Design she won a Masters scholarship to the renowned St Martins College in London where she completed her studies in Fashion. Her work brought her to Australia in 2008 where she has resided ever since, now settled with her family.
Sallyanne, a designer by trade, started Marr-Kett by carefully curating a collection of vintage and antique rugs, homewares and art, showcasing the work of global artisans and working their one-of-a-kind pieces into thoughtfully considered design spaces. The Byron Bay shop was later born in 2015
Sallyanne's love of Morocco, the people and the textiles being the main source of inspiration at the time, wanted to share the products and essence of Morocco and showcase how these pieces and the feeling of Morocco could be incorporated into all homes. The shop has very much grown and branched out considerably since those earlier days but the focus is still heavily on the vintage Moroccan rugs and supporting artisans in producing new made cushions and ceramics. working to supply shoppers, retailers, interior designers and collectors alike on a world wide scale.
