BERBÈRE PATTERN B
Patterned handmade wool rug
This rug is completely hand-knotted on traditional vertical looms in hand-spun wool, following the features of the Berber-Moroccan rugs of the beginning of ‘900. The finishing process is very elaborate: after the first shave and the handwash, every single rug is handled in order to create a unique product: a skilled craftsman works on the surface with scissors, in order to give it the typical irregularities of the original rugs. On one side a selvage is created, matching with the design pattern and decorated with a woolen stitching. On the other side, fringes are woven one by one, following the style of the old Berber rugs. The b/w version is carried out through the use of non-dyed wools, while the other versions involve the use of vegetable dyes.
