Size: 2 x 6.5 ftRug Style: HanbelPile: Flat with small pile dispersed throughoutMaterials: 100% live sheep’s wool, organic spice dyesThe Story Behind the Weave:Due to COVID-19, we're introducing a new way to buy never-before-seen rugs. We’re calling it Artisan Selects. We’ve asked our artisans to take pictures and share some of their favorite weaves.This piece is from a beautiful collective of women artisans just outside of Tazenakht.Mlouka, the matriarch of the collective, has passed the art of weaving down to her daughters, daughters-in-law, cousins, and villagers. As she is getting older, her daughter Naima & Fatima (pictured) have stepped in to oversee the teaching process.The colors of this weave were created with natural dyes like henna, pomegranate, 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.
