No. 21 - Cactus Silk Kilim - 5' x 7'
HANDCRAFTED IN MOROCCO
STORY + DESCRIPTION
With a fine flat weave that is supple and smooth to the touch, the Cactus Silk Kilim is a versatile piece that can be used as a rug, throw blanket, or wall hanging. The design, placement and quantity of the intricate and ancient Amazigh motifs vary from piece to piece, making each kilim unique. Every symbol has a specific meaning, telling a story about the women who create them.
The craft of making these rugs is an ancient one, passed down from the tribal women of the Middle-Atlas Mountains from one generation to the next. Each rug is crafted by a single artisan over the course of weeks. They are inherently unique and one-of-a-kind, each reflecting the personality and mood of the woman weaving it. This Cactus Silk Kilim is hand-woven and embroidered using the silky fibers of the Sabra Cactus.
