Where and How They Are Made:
These straw mats are traditionally crafted in the rural regions of Morocco, primarily by the Berber communities that have been indigenous to the region for thousands of years. Each mat is a result of hours of painstaking work. The process begins with the collection and preparation of straw, which is then dyed using natural dyes to achieve the desired color. Once prepared, artisans weave the straw meticulously by hand, often using looms that have been passed down through generations. The intricate designs, patterns, and motifs found on these mats are not just aesthetic embellishments; they often tell tales of the community's history, beliefs, and way of life.
