The pebbled gray wool in this rug emphasized the tightness of its weave, which produces a uniform texture to contrast the color variation.

This is a flatweave handwoven rug featuring motifs unique to the Jewish Berbers in Morocco. Traditionally these rugs were not used as a decorative element but as capes, blankets and bedcovers in the cold mountains in winter.

  • This object is sourced from an association in Fez, Morocco that benefits widowed and divorced women and promotes traditional weaving.
