We are two sisters who are unconditionally in love with our country. Amazed by the beauty of our culture, we always knew, we had to share it with the rest of the world. We felt a specific attachment to jewelry since we inherited this passion from our mother. Our main childhood memories are playing dress-up with our mother's necklaces and bracelets. She has a real passion for bold jewelry. It becomes a part of her identity; she is defining herself through a unique combination of necklaces, earrings, rings and bracelets.
After years of study, we are back to square one and Moroccan-Birds is born.
Today, with MoroccanBirds jewelry, we want to share the real Moroccan legacy by offering a unique line of authentic Moroccan jewelry. Jewelry that empowers women and makes her feel special.

All our pieces are ethically handmade by truly passionate Moroccan artisans located in Tiznit, which is the heart of the Moroccan silver craftsmanship. Unfortunately, even there, it becomes rare to find artisans that use traditional Berber jewelry-making techniques. With MoroccanBirds jewelry, we aim to preserve this legacy and the community behind by sharing a piece of our patrimony.
We have been lucky to find talented Moroccan artists/artisans, who have been crafting for more than 25years. They are completely dedicated to what they are producing, and the attention to details that they put into each creation makes it unique and inspiring. And that’s exactly what every woman should feel when wearing it: unique and inspiring.

Based in New York, Zineb is the designer and co-founder behind this one-of-kind line of Moroccan/Bohemian jewelry. She is constantly looking for new ways to combine tradition and trend through jewelry designs. She gets inspired by the traditional tribal signs of Morocco, which enables her to create collections with a strong aesthetic that hints the brand origin. To sum up, Zineb is always making sure that you feel some authentic Moroccan vibes while wearing MoroccanBirds’ piece of jewelry.
Rim lives between Casablanca and Montreal. In Morocco, she works in close collaboration with Moroccan artists/artisans. Together, they develop the fusion between Moroccan tradition and today’s bohemian trend through a line of handmade necklaces, bracelets, rings, and earrings. They strive to produce top quality pieces by using pure silver only.
