The Story Behind the Weave:
This rug was handwoven by Mlouka in her village outside Tazenakht. 

Mlouka is the matriarch of her family. 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 has stepped in to oversee the teaching process in the village. Mlouka is always present when we go to visit the family and is still, to this day, creating beautiful masterpieces.

This timeless piece was completed in early Spring of 2021 in hopes of a fruitful harvest of wheat. The harvest season of wheat usually takes place during the months of May and June.

The repetitive floral symbols represent the grain that you derive from wheat and was woven with the intention of bringing the weaver and final home good luck.

Mlouka used a combination of florals, saffron and undyed wool to create these warm and enduring colors.
