GHALIA SEBTI & TAWFIK BENNANI
Behind the Aït Manos house is a cosmopolitan couple that is passionate about Moroccan arts and crafts. Ghalia & Tawfik met in 1990 on the shores of the Mediterranean. They share a melting pot of cultures against a Moroccan background.With his Austrian and Moroccan origins, Tawfik was raised for the most part abroadas he was the son of diplomats. Tawfik was deeply attached to Morocco and itsdecorative arts, which his artist spirit combined with a Germanic rigor recognized forits uniqueness. As for Ghalia, she was raised in keeping with the traditions of Fes, thenative city of her father, and with the rigor of her mother from Lyon, who raised fourchildren with a sense of devotion and ongoing perfectionism. Around this passion for Morocco and its light, its traditions, aestheticism and crafts, they founded the AïtManos house in 1995, an allegory of their love for zellige. Since then, they have been manufacturing, sublimating, presenting and modernizing it without ever distortingits age-old manufacturing process.
