The Story Behind the Weave:
This Hanbel was woven by Mbarka & Khadija.

This style is called Hanbel. It’s woven with sheep’s wool from the local market. The colors are created with natural ingredients 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.

Every design element comes entirely from the artisan’s imagination - the symbols within this rug depict protection from evil, strength, beauty and respect just to name a few. 

This Hanbel spent almost a month hanging in the Moroccan sun which allows the colors of this rug be a true one-of-a-kind masterpiece.
