New RAKEN products : Carpets and Tapestries

Following the great interest shown by our visitors and customers for Tunisian carpets, we have extended our range in different ways :
- we have split the “Mergoum” category and created a separate entry for the “
Ouedhrefs”, which are short hair woven carpets from the Tunisian South;
- we have extended our “Allusha” carpet category to include other
Tunisian fine knotted carpets, notably the “Mihrab” and the “Magic Cupboard”. Our knotted carpets are now available in two qualities;
- we have introduced a new category “
Various Weavings”, where we now propose woven items such as pillow covers and blankets;
- we have extended our existing ranges, notably the popular modern kilims, with new designs.
Check out our updated
carpet & tapestry gallery to find your ultimate hand-knotted or woven rug.

New RAKEN products : Wrought Iron and Glass

”We are fascinated by their exotic design and the quality of their artisan workmanship !”  This is just one of the customer qualifications for our exclusive wrought iron and glass lamps and lights. Encouraged by the great response we got for these products, we have further extended the range by adding a number of new and exquisite designs, such as the following three, which are in no ways exhaustive. Browse through our Wrought Iron & Glass online catalog to find out what other geat new models we have created for you.

New RAKEN products : Copper, Silver, Pottery

The RAKEN product range in our category “Other Products” grows so fast, that we will soon have to split this into more specific sub-categories. One of them just emerged from the numerous collectors requests we received recently. Our “Copper” collection was started some three month ago with a few lamps and ceiling lights. In the meantime we added trays and folding tables and integrated the much sought “Sheesha” water-pipes therein. In the latter, we added the semi crystal “AAM” model which offers functional value. We also added a few Tuareg silver necklaces, notably those with the famous “Southern Cross”. Finally, you should definitely try our Tunisian pottery juice set, quite the right thing for the appreciation of a hot summer.
