Rug Style: Flatweave
Pile: Flat
Materials: 100% live sheep’s wool, undyed  
Time to Make: Due to the upcoming Ramadan and Eid al-Fitr holiday current weave time will be 10-12 weeks (rugs larger than 8' x 10' will take additional time)

The Story Behind the Weave:
This flatweave will be handwoven by Fatima.

It’s thought that this checkerboard design symbolizes barley and could be a wish for fertility for the weaver, or for the rug’s final home.

The repeated geometric elements make this piece feel modern, although it represents thousands of years of tradition and symbolism.

Each rug is made entirely by hand so there will always be small variations in pattern, color and exact size (up to 10 cm variation) due to the organic nature of the materials but we strive to accurately capture the detail and color so you know what you’re getting.   We do our best to visit the artisans every two to three weeks to capture the progression of the weave.

If you need a custom size send us a note at hello@salamhello.com and we’ll be in touch within 24 hours.
