The Story Behind the Weave:This intricate Hanbel runner will be handwoven by Fadma and the artisans of Le Vieux Village.
Association Le Vieux Village is a beautiful collective of women artisans just outside of Tazenakht. This association is a true family affair. Mlouka, the matriarch of the collective, has passed the art of weaving down to her daughters, Naima and Fatima, daughters-in-law, Latifa and Meriem, cousins, and villagers. All of the rugs from Le Vieux are made from 100% live wool that was brushed, carded, and spun by the women of the association.This rug style is called Hanbel. The colors were created with natural dyes using spice blends & local plants such as pomegranate skin, beets, saffron, henna and turmeric. While the majority of the weave is flat, the designs have a slightly higher pile, giving this piece texture and dimension.
The border surrounding the piece represents the defensive wall that usually surrounds a Kasbah.
Each rug is made entirely by hand so there will always be small variations in pattern, color and exact size (up to 10 cm variation) due to the organic nature of the materials but we strive to accurately capture the detail and color so you know what you’re getting.
