The Story Behind the Weave:
This rug was designed by Fatima Bahid and will be woven by the female-only weaving association that Fatima's sister, Khadija belongs to.

Khadija, pictured, and Fatima learned how to weave from their Mom who still works today helping to dye wool for the association.

Made with 100% "live" wool, the artisans of the association will card, spin and dye the wool all by hand. The base color is natural, undyed black wool and the abstract designs come from a blend of spices and plants such as indigo stone, saffron, henna, and pomegranate skin. 

The design of this pieces feel modern, thought it represents thousands of years of artistic tradition.

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.  We do our best to visit the artisans every two to three weeks to capture the progression of the weave.
