Soap Holder Moucharabieh
The Moucharabieh Soap Holder is part of the beautiful Images d’Orient range.
The Images d’Orient range was designed in Lebanon by Peggy Raphael Dabar. Peggy’s aim was to combine the charm of her Mediterranean heritage with a practical and contemporary look.
The Images d’Orient products were chosen and included by Metroscope, as it complements our wares made in Morocco.
Soap holders are a useful and a beautiful way to keep your soap on the handbasin. They do not scratch the enamel on your basin and they are easy to clean. They come attractively packaged in a cardboard pack.
The design of this soap holder is called Moucharabieh. The moucharabieh is a screen generally built out of small turned wood pieces, assembled according to a complex geometrical scheme. It allowed the viewer to observe without being seen, thus its nickname ‘jealousy windows’. This meticulous technique was and is still used on windows, balconies, ceilings and vaults as well as on furniture in the Mediterranean and Morocco.
The soap holders are made from PVC and are washable, heat resistant and durable.
Size: Each soap holder measures 10 x 12cm.
Care: Wash under the tap and use a nail brush or your finger nails to clean off any stubborn bits of soap.
