Rug Style: HanbelPile: Flat with small pile dispersed throughoutMaterials: Sheep’s wool, organic spice dyes
Design Notes: Exact design, size and placement of symbols may change but the style and colors will stay the same.Time to Make: Current weave time averages around 8-10 weeks. Rugs larger than 9' x 12' may take an additional 2 weeks. We do our best to visit the artisans every 2 to 3 weeks to capture the progression of the weave.
The Story Behind the Weave:This Hanbel will be woven by Naima's sister-in-laws, aunts and cousins. Naima is a leader of Association Le Vieux Village, a beautiful collective of women-only artisans located outside of Tazenakht, a town known for its rich weaving history.
This Hanbel is woven with sheep’s wool that has been washed, carded, spun and dyed by the artisans of the association. The colors were created with natural ingredients like henna, pomegranate skin, saffron, indigo, alfalfa and mint. While the majority of the weave is flat, the designs have a slightly higher pile, giving this piece texture and dimension.
Every design element comes entirely from the artisan’s imagination - the symbols within this rug depict protection from evil, strength, beauty and respect just 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.
