REHAMNA

Middle Altas, Morocco | Wool | Early 20th Century

The Berber Rehamna tribes reached their contemporary location, based between the Marrakesh plain and the Middle Atlas mountains in the XVI century. They soon became Arabs and were granted special status during the Sa’dien rule. These rugs are the outcome of their journeys. Carried in small containers, the red dye produced different tones with each new small batch of died wool. Saffron and madder root created infinite hues of scarlet and orange.
