Rug Style: Hand-KnotPile: SmallMaterials: Sheep’s wool, organic spice blends for dye Design Notes: Exact animal size, placement and accent colors may varyTime to Make: Current weave time averages around 8-10 weeks. We do our best to visit the artisans every 2 to 3 weeks to capture the progression of the weave.The Story Behind the Weave:This rug will be handwoven by Aisha who belongs to a female only a weaving association located 28km from the popular weaving town of Tazenakht. This piece consists of 100% live wool, which was carded, brushed and spun by the women of the association. The color palette is derived from organic spice blends such as indigo stone, saffron, henna and pomegranate skin.In more traditional rug designs, the symbolism was often a wish or depiction of the artisan’s life. These days, the next generation of artisans find 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.Each rug is made entirely by hand so there will always be small variations in pattern, color and exact size (up to 10 cm variation) due to the organic nature of the materials but we strive to accurately capture the detail and color so you know what you’re getting.
