Beatriz Máximo

Information

Passionate about the country and its people, Beatriz Maximo has lived in Morocco for twenty years. She has managed several boutique hotels in Marrakech and now has her own projects in the medina, in the Ourika Valley, and in the oasis of Skoura on the other side of the Atlas Mountains, on the fringes of the Sahara.
Her journeys in Morocco inevitably led to collecting rugs, at first for her own home, and then for interior design projects in hotels and private houses around the world. She has come to understand the aesthetics, the traditions and the history of Berber rugs, and has developed close relationships with rug makers.
Her web site is named for the hundreds of occasions when she has found herself sitting with Berber women atop piles of rugs, chatting about the designs and the traditions, as well as about their lives and loves, These rugs are the treasures she has found on her journeys through Morocco, over glasses of sweet mint tea.

Practical Information

Most of our rugs are vintage pieces, therefore irregularities, signs of use and colour fading can be seen occasionally. They give a certain charm to these original and authentic pieces.

Colours on screen can be slightly different from the colours of the real rug . Please contact us by email If you require more photos or information about a specific piece.

Each rug will be delivered with care instructions .

Shipping and returns

Mint Tea Lovers accept returns for exchange or credit under the following conditions: Item must be returned within 8 days after delivered, unused, unmarked and with the original label attached.

All shipping costs will not be refunded.
