The Story Behind the Weave:
This Glaoui rug was woven by Keltouma. 

Keltouma is part of the Association  Le Vieux Village, a beautiful collective of women artisans just outside of Tazenakht. Naima, pictured, is the leader of the Association.

Made from 100% wool, the women of the association carded, spun and dyed the wool by hand. The colors were created with natural dyes like henna, pomegranate skin, saffron, alfalfa and mint. 

This rug style is known as Glaoui. It is an extremely technical weave as it incorporates three techniques: Hand-knot, Zanafi and Kharita "map" in Arabic. This complex weaving technique consists of a labyrinthine of geometric shapes that has the same design on both sides which allows portions of this vintage rug to be reversible.
