The Story Behind the Weave:
This rug was handwoven by Meriem and her neighbor Malika, pictured.

Meriem & Malika belongs to the Anzal weaving association. Located a few kilometers north of the popular weaving town of Tazenakht, the weaving tradition in the village is nurtured by the woman passing the skills down from generation to generation. 

They spent 8 weeks weaving one long runner that was then cut into multiple runners. 

Each runner is made up of 100% live sheep's wool, which was brushed, carded, and spun by hand. 

The variation of black/brown and natural white was derived by undyed lack wool that was left to bake and fade in the sun to create this unique blend of color.
