On his travels Francois likes to collect antique textiles, Haitis, Mahlafas and vintage Berber and Merzouga rugs. To view the full range please contact Francois Gilles.


Francois started importing rugs from Morocco over 30 years ago to furnish both his and his clients’ homes. The demand for these works of art has increased over the last few years, as these beautiful vintage pieces perfectly compliment and give character and personality to the modern interiors now predominant both in Europe and around the world.



With their modern, neutral designs these fabrics are traditionally woven by women and include indira from the Atlas and anti-Atlas, dyed henne (wedding veils) from the anti-Atlas, Fez embroidery and fouta from the Rif mountains of Northern Morocco.
