The Story Behind the Weave:This vintage hand-knot was hand-woven by the women of Anzal who have have a female-only association. This beautiful piece was made from 100% wool, which was brushed, carded and spun by the women of the weaving association. The rug’s color is derived from a combination of herbs, spices and plants.
The two hero symbols located in the center of the rug are simply named the eight-pointed star. Based on the same structure as the Hamsa hand, an ancient amulet symbolizing the Hand of God, it is now thought to represent female fertility.
