The rural town of Bejaad, Central Morocco has long been a mecca for gorgeous, brightly colored hand-woven rugs. Historically made by women, these original rugs are created in their tiny, modest kitchens on traditional, rustic wooden looms. These hearty ladies are then able to continue their many household tasks in this Moroccan region surrounded by fields of pastoral scenes. These one-of-a-kind, custom rugs are beautifully patterned with symbols unique to the Bejaadi province.
Mushmina supports female weavers by paying these talented craftswomen 50-100% more than the local souk. Buying one of these special pieces for your home ensures the essential support of the weavers and their families. It also helps the community and economy of Bejaad, as well as protecting the valuable art of weaving in Morocco.
