The Story Behind the Weave:
This mixed Zanafi x Hand-Knot rug was handwoven by Saida.

Saida belongs to the Association
Le Vieux Village. A beautiful collective of women artisans just outside of Tazenakht. Mlouka, pictured, is the matriarch of the association.

Saida wove this rug using 100% "live" wool which she carded, brushed and spun by hand.

While the border of the rug uses natural, undyed wool, the hand-knotted portion of the rug uses argan shells, saffron, and bark to name a few local plants and spices used to achieve the color.

The abstract middle design of this piece feels modern, thought it represents thousands of years of artistic tradition.
