Morocco, Coopérative Nakasha, Rug Weaving
Cooperative Nakasha makes traditional carpets that are woven by hand. Many of the local women artisans who work on the carpets speak of how the craft it is an important aspect of Moroccan culture: to weave is to express their feelings, encapsulate their way of life, and preserve the values and histories of their families, children and communities. A symbol of pride in the home and hearth — every house must have a Moroccan carpet. Just as they are filled with symbolism that reflects the story of the maker’s life, each carpet varies greatly depending on the locale where it was woven.
