A beautiful, tightly-woven palm mat which exists nowhere else on the American market. Simple without being plain, this piece can be used on either side, depending on how daring you’re feeling. The front features a classic, artisanal flatweave, reminiscent of jute. The back is covered in tufted palm leaf which sticks out in all directions, and though it isn’t soft, its volume helps create a cushion when it’s hugging the floor.
Palm fiber is a staple raw material from Morocco which achieves its golden hue and tensile strength from the sun. The freshly-cut palm leaves turn from green to gold as they’re sun dried for several days, and are then braided into strips which can then be woven. Cotton, a vegetable fiber, is widely used in rugs because of its sturdiness and strength.
Each palm mat was woven by female weavers living in rural areas of the Middle Atlas mountains. We work with a cooperative who delivers the raw palm fiber to women for them to work with on their own schedule. Woven and finished from the comfort of their homes, each mat is subsequently washed and dried in the surrounding fields.
Not all rugs are created equally. Ours are woven with traditional and innovative techniques, sustainable fibers, and no superfluous markups. We believe that buying a high-quality rug should be smooth, transparent, and affordable. We feel the same about textiles, furniture, and accessories, all of which are created with integrity and attention to detail.
