Product: hand woven rug made with 100% natural hand spun wool from the Palestinian West Bank. 78 x 130cm

Artisans: These beautiful woollen rugs are made by a community of women living close to Hebron in the Palestinian West Bank. The style and colours are traditional with a few contemporary touches. One of the weavers we met explained that traditional colours are red, white, black, and green…. But they have modernised the product with new colours: she told us that she has been weaving “since the day I was born.”

She traditionally would have made larger pieces, but now the focus on smaller rugs which are easier to sell.  This rug would take around 10 days to make. All steps in the production process are 100% Palestinian. The sheep are reared and sheered in the region. The women then gather and wash the wool many times and then spin it into thread and prepare it for weaving. Historically it was a main profession for women. Every home would have rugs made by the women of the family. 

It is an essential part of their lifestyle & income.

Creating these rugs is an important way to preserve this precious cultural heritage, and the women continue to do so despite the difficult conditions of production and marketing. 

We only have one of these pieces in stock, and we are working on having more pieces as soon as it is possible for them to be shipped from the region. Please let us know if you are interested in buying this work and we can reserve rugs from the next delivery for you.

In detail: 100% hand spun, hand loomed wool. 78 x 130cm
