ENLIGHTENMENT PILE KNOT TAPESTRY
Dimensions: 3' x 5'
100% first quality wool.
Handwoven in Tangier, Morocco.
Each piece comes ready to hang as a wall tapestry or for use on the floor. Made with the finest quality wool, using traditional Berber weaving methods, they are designed for both summer and winter months. The wool (hairy side) is flipped up in the winter months and the knotted side is then flipped up for the summer.
Handwoven in Tangier, a major port on the Strait of Gibraltar, has been the gateway between Africa and Europe since Phoenician times. Traditionally women would make these rugs as personal weavings for use to tell their story, creating symbols within their weavings. The rugs were used for many purposes - as tapestries to hang on the wall, to sleep on at night or as blankets in the winter months.
Designs are based on original paintings of Cali’s personal work from her symbol series.
