Our eco-firendly "Hand & Crafts" Vintage rug is entirely made from 100% Tunisian mountain sheep wool, mostly with a natural dye, with an artisanal process that makes it an eco-friendly and healthy rug.
During the shearing season, the sheep are shorn. Once collected, the wool is carefully cleaned with water from natural sources, then exposed to the sun to dry. A natural fruit extract is used to dye the wool, to obtain a well-colored material for a pretty decoration.
This makes weaving an ecological and healthy carpet. After their manufacture, the carpets are stored in clay houses in the mountains. Through this weaving process, not only does the rug keep a smoothness to the touch but also it preserves the health of babies, children and even adults.
Such a handmade rug, also known as margoum, takes 10 to 15 days for a woman to weave it, while taking care of her responsibilities to her family. Such a woven piece is the product of ancestral know-how passed down from mother to daughter, from one generation to another over time.
Behind each weaving, a story that is told through signs and colors to reflect a well-defined category of Amazigh and Berber society: young / old, married / single, male / female, delighted / sad).
