The Story Behind the Weave:This hand-knotted Zanafi style rug was handwoven by Mina. Mina is part of a women-only association and specializes in this mixed weaving technique.Her pieces are super unique as she uses the hand-knotted section to tell a beautiful story of color & symbolism.Mina wove this rug using live wool. While the border of the rug uses natural, undyed wool, the hand-knotted portion of the rug uses beets, pomegranate, saffron, and indigo. The abstract symbols represent magical, protective properties.
