Wider rugs are often knotted by more people because one person cannot comfortably reach the two sides of the warping. This rug was made by a pair of sisters who often make large-sized rugs together because they like to work together and have a good time chatting all the way through.
They briefly discuss the design in advance but the details aren’t planned; the design is more likely to take shape on the go. This rug also had a forerunner, but the lines developed spontaneously during the weaving process.
The rug was hand-knotted, using natural and hand-dyed wool yarn and cotton warping. It has fringes on both ends.
** All our rugs are carefully hand-knotted. Each piece is completely unique, bearing the individual self-expression of the weaver woman as well as the weaving traditions of the tribes of the Atlas Mountains. We handpick each and every piece of our collection. Please note that Berber rugs are handcrafted products so you may spot minor imperfections. We think this only adds to their character and charm.
