The Story Behind the Weave:
This rug was handwoven by the women of Anzal.

This women-only association is located in a village about 30 km north of the popular weaving town, Tazenakht. The Anzal collective was founded in 2007, and is kept alive by women passing the craft down through the generations. Saida, the president of the association, is our liaison for all our custom orders.

We met the women of Anzal in 2019 on a special day for the association: After sharing a small space with a men’s association, the women were finally moving into a bigger space, just for them. The night before our visit, the women had blessed and celebrated the new space with a prayer and a meal of homemade couscous. We were the final visitors to purchase in the old space. The women of the association told us that our visit answered their prayers for a successful start to their new journey.

The Zanafi weaving technique comes from the High Atlas Mountains. This technique is extra special as it's reversible and the symbols become inverted depending on the side.

The bright palette and intricate designs make this piece a perfect rug for any home.
