> Customize M'Rirt's Numidia Hand-Knot
Rug Style: Hand-KnotPile: SmallMaterials: 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 the artisans in the village of Wlad Sbita. The village of Wlad Sbita is located on the foothills of the Middle Atlas Mountains. The traditional Beni M’rirt rug is inspired by the popular Beni Ourain rug. There are quite a few differences in these techniques, the most visible is the thickness of the knot and wool that the artisans of M’Rirt use. This design of this piece was inspired by a vintage design that we wanted to update with warmer colors. The hero symbol in the design was the original universal sign of the Amazigh nation which was called Numidia at the time. While the base of the rug uses natural, undyed wool, the colorful splotches use a mix of florals to get the perfect pinkish hues.
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.
