> Customize Saida's Minimalist Flatweave
Rug Style: HanbelPile: Flat Materials: 100% live sheep’s wool, natural and spice dyes 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 Saida.This flatweave rug will be made from 100% "live" wool and will be carded, brushed and spun by Saida. The beautiful white that you see is undyed, natural wool. The designs will be embroidered with henna, saffron, and pomegranate dyed wool.In more traditional, vintage rug design, the symbolism is often a wish or depiction of the artisan’s life. These days, the next generation of artisans finds inspiration in other sources, like the natural landscapes around them. For example, the pronged diamond symbol in the center of this rug represents a frog. The diamond shapes in the four corners can be interpreted as flowers or symbols of protection against the evil eye. Details like this give Khadijah’s minimalist piece character that will shine in any home.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.
