The Story Behind the Weave:
This rug comes from two artisans from a village that sits in the Ait Bouguemez valley,  which is located on the northern end of the High Atlas Mountains.   

This rug style is known as an Azilal rug. This type of rug tends to have undyed sheep’s wool for its base and vibrant colors used for the design elements. The abstract design elements of Azilal rugs coupled with their vibrant colors make these pieces feel modern despite its representation of thousands of years of artistic tradition.

This piece was woven with 100% "live" wool, which allows for healthier and stronger wool. The vibrant colors form a combination of natural spice blends as well as powder dyes.
