The Story Behind the Weave:

Morocco has extended its quarantine until the middle of June. And while we feel lucky our team of weavers are safe & healthy, it means we can’t currently visit their homes. So, 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.

Malika, 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 (both pictured) have stepped in to oversee the teaching process.

This is one of heir favorite rugs which has integrated two weaving techniques, a Zanafi base complimented by raised hand-knotted lines for symbolic decoration with two small colorful dots at the top of the weave.
