The Story Behind the Weave:This Hanbel was handwoven by Khadija with assistance from her sister and mother.It’s made from 100% live wool, which the women carded, spun and dyed themselves. Not only does this make the wool stronger but it's extremely soft to touch.The colors were created with natural dyes like henna, pomegranate, 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.
