A shepherd tends a flock of sheep in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains. In the summer, the flock is sheared of its winter wool. It can take 50-100 coats to make a standard sized rug.


The wool is bundled and carried to the Oum Er-Rbia River, where it is rinsed and beat against the rocks to cleanse it of a year’s worth of wear.

The wool dries in the summer sun.


The women spin the wool into long strings of yarn using just their hands, shins, and wooden dowels.


Now, the yarn is either left as natural, or dyed using natural pigments and then returned to the studio.

The new yarn is strung onto looms.


The women begin the long process of weaving a design. Each woman (sometimes working with a partner) works on a rug from start to finish. This can take well over a month of tying knots.


The finished rugs are then doused with water, scrubbed clean, and draped over wooden racks where they’ll dry in the mountain air.

Size Guide

"Measure twice, cut once." Make sure you order the right size rug for your space using the size guide below.

What to Measure: Your entire seating area. 

Tip: Leave a minimum of 6-8" of rug on either side of your sofa. 

Option A: All In. Every piece of furniture is contained on the surface of the rug. 

Common Sizes: 9x12, 10x14, 12x15 

Option B: Half on, half off. The front legs of your furniture rest on the rug. 

Common Sizes: 6x9, 8x10

What to measure: Your bed and nightstands (if you have them) 

Tip: Leave 30-36" of rug all around the bed 

Option A: Under the Bed. At least the lower 2/3 of the bed should be on the rug. For larger rooms, the entire bed can rest on the rug. 

Common Sizes: 8x10 (Queen Bed), 9x12 (King Bed) 

Option B: Runners. Place runners on either side of your bed. This feels great first thing in the morning.

What to measure: Your entire dining area, chairs included.
