The Story Behind the Weave:
This Hand-Knot rug was woven by Khatima and her neighbor Laila.

Residing in Anzal, a village located just north from the popular weaving town of Tazenakht, this place is home to one of the first women owned and run weaving associations.

In Anzal the weaving tradition is nurtured by the woman passing the skills down from generation to generation. Made from 100% live wool, the wool of the rugs was carded, brushed and spun by the women of the association. 

It’s thought that this checkerboard design symbolizes barley and could be a wish for fertility for the weaver, or for the rug’s final home. 

* Please note, this rug was made to test out a variation for one of our existing rug designs. Fatima & Naima's Grid Hand-Knot is available to customize in any size you may need.
