The Story Behind the Weave:
This Hanbel was woven by Mlouka & Naima.

Mlouka is one of the leaders of a collective of women artisans just outside of Tazenakht. T
he matriarch of the collective, she has passed the art of weaving down to her daughter, Naima, daughters-in-law, cousins, and villagers. 

Using 100% live wool and all natural spices, this piece is absolutely breathtaking. The rug’s base color comes from naturally dying the wool blue from an indigo stone, and the symbolism hand stitched and embroidered into the weave comes from henna, pomegranate, saffron, alfalfa and mint.
