The Story Behind the Weave:
This runner was woven by Fadma.

We first Fadma when we were visiting Khadija & Mbarka who make all of our intricate Hanbels.

Fadma ,who is Khadija's sister, was in the middle of a weave for her daughter's future husband. It is tradition for this village to gift rugs when children are in the process of getting married.

This runner took Fadma 3 weeks on this runner. This style is called Hanbel. It’s woven with sheep’s wool from the local market. The colors were created with natural ingredients like henna, pomegranate skin, saffron, indigo, alfalfa and mint.

While the majority of the weave is flat, the designs have a slightly higher pile, giving this piece texture and dimension.
