This piece was created by skilled women weavers in central Morocco, North Africa. Weaving is a skill passed down through generations and part of Morocco's cottage industry. The symbols each have meanings inspired by the women's surroundings: wheat, mountains, butterflies, fertility, and protection against the evil eye. Each piece takes many days to complete and natural variations are part of the beauty of handmade items. Your purchase helps support artisan communities and the preservation of traditional craft.
