This rug has been named after the artisan himself, the sweetest and charming 4th generation weaver from Sefrou, an authentic Moroccan city south of Fez. Using wool from the sheep herding which takes place at the base of the mountain, he spins the wool to make the yarn for the blankets, rugs and shawls he makes. Now one of only 5 weavers in Sefrou, he has worked in this workshop all his life, trained by his father, who was trained by his father, a true family art.

 

Mustapha is a hard working man, as working on a loom is a 2 man job but he is working solo.

My favourite quote from Mustapha is as follows:

 

"I've got so many patterns in my head that I couldn't finish them all before I die" Like a musician with a music sheet, as he works, more ideas come.

 

This hand woven black and white rug is narrow in shape and would work well in a hallway, landing or smaller space.
