Rug Weaving

Next stop on our day trip was a family-operated rug weaving business. Rugs are made from wool and dyed from local plants – sometimes seeds ground using traditional grinding stones. Some colours are created from others by adding various things like citrus. When you turn the rug over it is identical on the other side – so you usually turn it over every 6 months for minimum wear.

Rugs are designed by father and son with motifs that have indigenous meaning.
