This extraordinary rug transforms a floor into a beautiful painting with its patchwork of expressive and geometric patterns, colors and techniques. The Glaoua tribal rugs stand out from other styles for their three different weaving techniques: hand weaving, hand knotting and hand embroidery. This carpet is an instant conversation piece and... would be also be gorgeous as a wall hanging.
Traditionally spun by the Berber women weavers of the Atlas mountains, natural sheep's wool is dyed with locally harvested plants and materials. Yellow is derived from saffron, blue from indigo, green from wild mint, red from henna and burgundy from pomegranate.
