OUR GOAL: MAKING SPACE FOR THE SIGNIFICANT, NATURALLY.
We’re Techiya and Moriya. We are good friends, business partners, and the creators of Rooga. As young mothers, we struggled with the disconnect between wanting to live with intention and having lives so intensive we could hardly keep up. We realized if we wanted to live purposefully, we’d have to first clear out some space.
Our first Rooa rug was created out of this concept - allowing us to gradually slow down, connect to ourselves and to our loved ones together on the rug looking eye to eye. A space of time where we could stop and be together.
RESPECTING MOTHER NATURE
Rooga is inspired by the Somali word for rug. Rooga rugs link us to our roots and to the earth. We love using cork because it is a super Eco-friendly sustainable natural material. Not one Cork oak tree is cut down to produce cork! And it has so many other benefits since it's naturally antimicrobial, it contains zero PVC’s or harmful chemicals.
We’ve expanded our product line since that time, but everything we make still creates space. Everything we create proves that beautiful things can be practical, that designs can combine imagination, art and playfulness and help to enhance a warm family atmosphere.
