A Moroccan rug is a work of art for your floor. It’s an investment that retains its value and charm.
This beautiful rug is made from 100% sheep's wool and is the perfect size to put right beside your bed. It would also look beautiful in a nursery, kids room or bathroom.
Each rug is made by a skilled female artisan in rural Morocco, following the original rug design shown here. No two rugs are the same as they are all hand made, however the design and wool colours follow the same concept provided to the weaver, made in partnership with raha roho - who partners with female artisans to hand knot these pieces using a century-old tradition of rug making.
What materials make our rugs? Your rug contains only two materials – a “spine” of cotton and tens of thousands of knotted strands of wool.
How is each rug made? Once our weaver has created the rug’s spine at the cooperative, she takes it home and re-assembles it on her own loom. She then rolls the bundles of wool into balls to prepare for the hand knotting process. The rug is started upsidedown and the weaver sits behind the loom to create the design in mirrored-image. Depending on the design for the rug, the weaver may follow a simple hand drawn picture or work from her imagination. Many weavers have children and families so they may only spend a few hours a day at their looms, thus taking up to two months to complete a single piece.

Please follow these simple guidelines to take care of your rug:
For regular care:
– You can vacuum your rug.
– To eliminate odors and humidity, let it dry in the sun for a day.
– Make sure it does not stay humid. If you store it, we do not recommend storing it in a bag.
Cleaning your rug:
– You can wash it by hand with laundry soap and rinse it with your garden hose, and after let it fully dry in the sun.
Shedding of loose fibres is normal with new wool rugs and a natural result of being handcrafted.
Shedding will diminish with regular vacuuming or a broom, typically within three to six months.
