The Story Behind the Weave:This Hanbel rug was hand-woven by Latifa. Latifa learned how to weave from her mother-in-law, Mlouka. The matriarch of the village, she has passed the art of weaving down to her daughters, daughters-in-law, cousins, and villagers. Made from 100% live wool, Latifa and her sister-in-laws carded, spun and dyed the wool themselves. Not only does this make the wool stronger but it's extremely soft to touch.The colors were created with natural dyes using spices & plants. The base color comes from indigo stone while the accent symbols come from pomegranate skin, beets, saffron, and alfalfa.
