Sizing Guide

Rug Style: Flatweave
Pile: Flat
Materials: 100% live sheep’s wool, undyed  
Time to Make: Current weave time averages around 8-10 weeks. Rugs larger than 9' x 12' may take an additional 2 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 flatweave will be handwoven by Fatima.

It’s thought that this checkerboard design symbolizes barley and could be a wish for fertility for the weaver, or for the rug’s final home.

The repeated geometric elements make this piece feel modern, although it represents thousands of years of tradition and symbolism.

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. 

If you need a custom size send us a note at hello@salamhello.com and we’ll be in touch within 24 hours.
