“Berber weaving is an execution of pure instinct narrating life stories and personal experiences in an abstract form. It is a rite of passage. In this way the Berber women carefully preserve their heritage of technique and knowledge passing down messages in wool from one generation to another creating textiles full of life and charm
The symbolism of the Berber tradition is often referred to as the Infinite Rapport meaning the pattern and the spirit of the work extends beyond its physical borders. It is from a visual language of dark diamonds on ivory white that we communicate with the modern world. Wool rugs are simply the medium of our expression.
Berber carpets show shifts in pattern, reflecting a change in life events, a different weaver’s fresh input or spontaneous creative expression. As many Berber women believe the rugs are imbued with a spirit, either from the imprint of the artist or from the living nature of the wool, they resist monitoring the progression of their work, often only revealing the entire rug when finished.
Once the deeply laborious weaving process is completed, the rugs are considered part of the family and a prized possession of the home.” – Atlas Weavers
I am so excited to team up with Atlas Weavers to give you the scoop on their beautiful moroccan rugs + give away one to a very lucky Sarah Scoop reader!
“The idea behind Atlas Weavers was to share this art and its abstract meaning with the world, helping to preserve the Berber heritage and ancient weaving skills of the indigenous Moroccan tribes. Creating jobs, reinvesting in the local community and supporting the development of thriving artisan weaving communities by protecting the environment in which they live and work allows our families to flourish in the future.
As a Moroccan American and Berber, I am committed to reducing illiteracy in my community. We provide a school and teachers so weavers’ children can learn to read and write and in this way work towards eliminating poverty in the Atlas Mountain communities. Every commission brings me closer to this dream.”
