> Le Vieux Speckled Red Runner
Size: 35 in x 9.8 ftRug Style: Hand-knotPile: Low to Small Materials: 100% live sheep’s wool, organic spice blends for dye The Story Behind the Weave:This runner is from a beautiful collective of women artisans just outside of Tazenakht.Pictured is Mlouka, the matriarch of the collective, she has passed the art of weaving down to her daughters, daughters-in-law, cousins, and villagers. As she is getting older, her daughter Naima & Fatima have stepped in to oversee the teaching process.
While the majority of the rug uses beets, henna, and pomegranate skin as the dyes to get the beautiful spectrum of red there are accent blue undertones that come from indigo stone.
The unique colorways makes this piece feel modern, although it represents thousands of years of artistic tradition.
