The Story Behind the Weave:
This rug was handwoven by Keltouma who belongs to a female only association located just outside of
Taznakht, an area that has a rich weaving history.
Keltouma spent 5 weeks weaving these Zanafi x Hand-Knot pieces (the second piece can be found here.)
These two pieces are super unique as Keltouma has combined two weaving techniques to create this one-of-a-kind rug.
The Zanafi x Hand-Knot tells a beautiful story of color & symbolism. For example, the star-like symbol located on the right hand-side of the rug is simply named the eight-pointed star. Based on the same structure as the Hamsa hand, an ancient amulet symbolizing the Hand of God, it is now thought to represent female fertility.
