Naima was taught how to weave by her mom and is now the family member passing on the tradition of weaving to the younger members of the family.The whole family weaves and works together in a small village outside of Tazenakht.This sun-drenched Beni Ourain took three months to complete. Using 100% live wool and all natural spices, this piece is absolutely breathtaking. The rug’s base color comes from natural wool which has been over-dried in the sun to get the faint yellow undertones.
Naima was inspired by the natural landscapes around her village, brought to life through various symbols that represent respect, fertility and protection against evil to name a few.
