> Customize Le Vieux Village's Boxed Flatweave
Rug Style: FlatweavePile: FlatMaterials: 100% live, undyed sheep’s wool 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 a beautiful collective of women artisans just outside of Tazenakht.Mlouka, the matriarch of the collective, has passed the art of weaving down to her daughters, daughters-in-law, cousins, and villagers.As she is getting older, her daughter Naima, pictured, has stepped in to oversee the teaching process.This rug will be made from 100% live wool and will carded, spun and dyed (if a color is desired) by the women of the association. The combination of modern design elements and thousands of years of tradition makes this piece a true showstopper.
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.
