From southern Morocco, a mere 43 miles from the epicenter of the recent earthquake, comes an array of beautiful small rugs from weavers we’ve been working with for nearly a decade. (Thankfully all are ‘ok’.) Within this collection of little gems you’ll find an intriguing variety of styles-but don’t delay, quantities are limited.
This photo was sent by one of the Moroccan rug weavers who wanted us to ‘meet' her uncles tasked with watching her sheep. Siroua breed of sheep, found only in this region of Morocco, posses lustrous wool prized by rug makers. Sitting in shade cast by olive trees, listening to their portable radio, the shepherds keep watch over her flock.
Below, a shepherd scurries to shoo goats out of an olive trees near Ouarzazate in the High Atlas Mountains. How on earth did they get up into the tree, and what made them make the attempt?
