Made By

Keltouma and the Artisans of M’rirt

Keltouma and her daughter Soukina lead this group of 25 artisans from a Village just outside Beni M’rirt, in the Middle Atlas Mountains. Founded in the early 2000s, the collective makes medium to high hand-knot rugs, a style named after the region as well as M’rirt Zanafi rugs, their interpretation of the Zanafi style from the southeast.

Traditional rugs from this region use a thick knotting technique, which makes the rugs feel extra plush.

Rug Style

Zanafi

The Zanafi weaving technique comes from the High Atlas Mountains.

This technique requires the highest level of skill and concentration. Each row is created with an intricate system of counting. This style is extra special as it's reversible.

The Zanafi rug is also known for its side tassels, but can be woven without them on request.
