Originating in the Middle Atlas Mountains, Zemmour hanbel rugs and pillows are made with the thinnest of sheep's wool.
This labyrinth-like weaving technique requires acute focus and skill. Each symbol in the design is created with an intricate system of counting. You will always find something new to admire in these detailed pieces.
