The Story Behind the Weave:
This rug was handwoven by Meriem.

Meriem is part of a collective of women artisans just outside of Tazenakht, a village that is known for its weaving history.

Using 100% live wool and all natural spices, this piece exudes energy. The rug’s base color comes from naturally dying the wool red from saffron and floral mixes. The symbolism hand stitched and embroidered into the weave comes from henna, pomegranate skin, indigo, saffron flower and mint.

Every design element comes entirely from Meriem’s imagination - the symbols within this rug depict protection from evil, strength, beauty and respect just to name a few.
