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 have stepped in to oversee the teaching process.This rug style is known as Glaoui. It is an extremely technical weave and took Malika two months to complete. The Glaoui style incorporates three techniques: Hand weaving, hand knotting and hand embroidery.
