Djerba Rug - ZEBRA
155 x 100 cm
Palm fibre, hand-dyed with natural dyes and hand-woven.
Travelling to isolated places, often free from mass tourism, sometimes still protected by indigenous people gives me the chance to understand the importance of using natural materials and vegetal fibres.
With a contemporary yet exotic feeling, these floor coverings are hand-woven by a talented artisan in Tunisia whom has hand-dyed the fibre with natural dyes to obtain zig-zag motif, turning it into a funky straw mat.
Each Rug is one-of-a-kind.
The darker stripes might change colour with time.
