The Story Behind the Weave:
Morocco has extended its quarantine until the end of May. 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 is one of Saida’s favorite rug.

In more traditional vintage rug design, the symbolism is often a wish or depiction of the artisan’s life. These days, the next generation of artisans finds inspiration in other sources, like the natural landscapes around them. 

For example, not only does this weave depict camels, donkeys and birds but also lion paws which represent strength and protection.
