The Story Behind the Weave:This Hanbel rug will be handwoven by Latifa. Latifa learned how to weave from her mother-in-law, Mlouka, the matriarch of the village. Mlouka has passed the art of weaving down to her daughters, daughters-in-law, cousins, and villagers. Made with 100% sheep's wool, Latifa and her sister-in-laws will card, spin and dye the wool themselves. Not only does this make the wool stronger but it's extremely soft to touch.The colors will be created with natural dyes using spices & plants from the local landscape. The base color comes from indigo stone while the accent symbols come from pomegranate skin, beets, henna, saffron, and turmeric to name a few.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.
