> Customize Khatima & Rokia's Midnight Blue Flatweave x Zanafi
Rug Style: Zanafi Borders x Flatweave MiddlePile: Flat Materials: 100% live sheep’s wool, organic spice blends for dye 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 rug will be handwoven by neighbors Khatima & Rokia. Khatima and Rokia belong to a female-only weaving association located 30km from the popular weaving town of Tazenakht. The Zanafi border technique comes from the High Atlas Mountains and is extra special as its reversible - the symbols become inverted depending on the side.
The middle of rug is derived by the Flatweave weaving technique. This piece will be woven using 100% "live" wool, which allows for healthier and stronger wool. While the Zanafi border utilizes undyed wool, the Flatweave colors comes from naturally dying the wool blue from an indigo stone, and the symbolism hand stitched and embroidered into the weave comes from henna, beets, flowers, pomegranate skin, and saffron.
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.
