The Story Behind the Weave:
This rug was handwoven by Saida who is the president of a female only association located in the southeast of Morocco.

This piece consists of 100% "live" wool, which was carded, brushed and spun by the women of the association. The rug’s colors come from naturally dying the wool using various spice and vegetable blends.

In more traditional vintage rug design, the symbolism is often a wish or depiction of the artisan’s life. These days, the next generation of artisans finds inspiration in other sources, like the natural landscapes around them. For example, the repeating diamonds in the middle represent flowers which is thought to symbolize protection against the evil eye.
