Mint tea is a staple of Moroccan life. In fact, it is the national beverage, a symbol of legendary Moroccan hospitality. It is served at mealtimes and all throughout the day. Steeped in ritual and ceremony, it is not only served in homes, but also in a local shop while you are going through a myriad of rugs.
On our journey roaming Moroccan villages and handpicking Berber rugs, we met Kacem, who introduced us to a unique rug, Fatma’s rug, a vintage piece handwoven in the early 80s by Fatma, an Amazigh women weaver. We were taken by the story that brought Fatma’s rug from one region to another and from one family to another.
Kacem wanted the stories of the Berber women weavers to travel beyond Morocco and we promised him that we would share!
Discover the story behind the inimitable imperfections that are a small part of the magic that is at the heart of Fatma’s rug.
