Das Team von Siroccoliving, Dänemark, beschreibt die Marke wie folgt: “The name is inspired by the sirocco wind, that blows all the way from Sahara to Europe and brings little grains of sand from one culture to another. We wish to give you the possibility to add unique products to interior decoration, products from fascinating cultures. Our unique products will bring a personal, warm and aesthetic expression to interior decoration. All products are based on traditional crafts and materials of the highest quality. Sirocco is a Danish family business who introduced the Sirocco products to the Danish market in 2010. The Danish designer Ellen Raven and her husband have for several years lived in the Siwa Oasis in the middle of Sahara. They are in charge of development and production of the Sirocco products – in co-operation with the locals. The design of all products, takes source in ancient handcraft traditions inherited through generations. Behind the Sirocco production is a growing number of Egyptian artisans. In a country that offers very little support in general and where the economy has been destroyed by revolution and lack of tourism, more and more people depend on their hands and the work they offer using them. In these hands and the minds behind, ancient talents and unique craftsmanship is nurtured. These qualities being heavily threatened by globalism and the ‘use and throw’ mentality introduced recently, are in danger of disappearing. Sirocco living works only in fair, loyal and ethical relationships. We know that creating this economic platform for a community demands responsibility and we strive to be there all the way.
Each person purchasing a Siroocoliving product can rest assured that even without any certification or label to lean against, behind each product is a list of content and proud artisans doing magic with their hands and being valued for it. The base material plays an important part in the Siroccoliving products. Whether its cotton, copper or stone or another material, we work only with pure materials in simple forms that pay well deserved tribute to the beauty of the material itself.”

Zum Material Salz und den Produkten sagt der Hersteller:
“On our cushion covers and bedspreads you will find the elegant and intricate embroideries of the women of the Siwa oasis in the Sahara Desert. This unique artisanship is handed down form mother to daughter since the dawn of the berber population of the oasis. We use the traditional symbolic patterns but adapted into contemporary designs. This way we aim to blow new energy and creativity into the ancient craft as well as paying the appropriate tribute to the traditional designs and their meaning. Our hand made textile comes from two small villages in Egypt. One is located in the outskirts of Cairo in an area famous for its textile. In the old times this small village and the Siwa oasis were connected via the caravan route. Here we work with a family business who are specialized in the traditional patterns of the different areas of Egypt. The other village is set on the Nile in the south of Egypt. Also a family owned business the weavers create beautiful materials in techniques known only to this specific area. The pure wool kelim carpets and cushions is inspired by traditional beduin patterns. The craftsmen are working from a small factory in the part of Cairo called Khiamia. A truly magical place that still takes your thoughts centuries back in time.”
