The Story Behind the Weave:
This coral hand-knot is from a beautiful collective of women artisans just outside of Tazenakht.

Mlouka, the matriarch of the collective, has passed the art of weaving down to her daughters, daughters-in-law, cousins, and villagers.

As she is getting older, her daughter Naima, pictured, has stepped in to oversee the teaching process.

This design is inspired by a vintage piece that the ladies wanted to update with warmer colors.

The weave was made from 100% live wool, which the women of the association carded, spun, and dyed themselves. The colors were created with natural dyes such as henna, beets, pomegranate skin, indigo stone and saffron. 

After the weave it was washed with oxygen to recreate the vintage feel of the original rug.
