The Story Behind the Weave:
This rug was hand-woven by Meriem. 

Meriem is part of a women’s only association located in the southeast of Morocco

Originally from a village off the Tizi n'Tichka, a famous passageway linking Marrakech to the southeast of Morocco, she now lives in the southeast with her husband and young child. 

The weave was made from 100% live wool, which the women of the association carded, spun, and dyed themselves. The colors were created with natural dyes such as henna & saffron and accented with indigo for . 

In more traditional vintage rug design, the symbolism is often a wish or depiction of the artisan’s life. These days, the next generation of artisans finds inspiration in other sources, like the natural landscapes around them. 

For example, this piece represents the view of the Atlas Mountains from the village that Meriem now resides.
