COVID-19: "TOGETHER" we are all in this together

How COVID-19 is impacting Mykilim activity: We’re all in this TOGETHER

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to develop as the days go by. As a brand and a community, we believe that we must play our part in slowing down the spread of the virus while we continue to operate.

Our top priority continues to be dedicated to our team and our customers. This means prioritizing the health and safety of our artisans at every level of the production and sales process: from partner stores to headquarters, and across our supply chain.
As of now, our partner stores are closing until April.

Our online store will remain open, however with some delays in the delivery of most orders. For any questions or assistance, we are available at customer@mykilimshop.com or via our social media channels.
This is a critical moment for the world and our communities. As we all continue to live our daily lives to the best of our ability, let’s work together to protect and care for one another.

What is happening with your workshop in Morocco during this time?
Currently our workshop is closed. We have been in constant communication with our artisans in the last few days and in accordance with the safety policies, we’ve agreed to slow down our activity. It was a very difficult decision for everyone involved, but especially for our artisans.
We’ve decided to support them through donating a percentage of every purchase from the beginning of March until May.

 

"10% of the amount is directly transferred to our local artisans in Morocco."

 

How does it work?
When an order is placed, 10% of the amount is directly transferred to our local artisans in Morocco.

This will help to support their current fixed expenses and provide some revenue during this time.

How will the team be working during this time?
Our team will continue to work remotely on all sales and marketing issues. We will use this time to create new content and keep our customers updated on all shipment processes and delays. Our team is dedicated to the continued support of our customers during this time.
