This reversible wool throw is of the finest possible quality obtainable in modern Moroccan textiles.



Our exclusive, hand selected, Zanafi Textiles of Morocco Collection emphasizes the use of natural dyes, hearkening back to pre-Industrial Age weaving traditions.

Each textile portrays a unique scene, such as desert and hills, or seascapes, woven into the field and framed by a border. Additionally, the emphasis on natural dyes mirrors the colors one would see throughout Morocco’s countryside. In this way, these double-faced weaves become almost like a painted illustration, re-imagining Morocco’s natural splendor and allowing us to bring this luxury into our personal spheres. This style of weave has become known as "Zanafi" for it's bright and colorful mix of colors as well as tribal and modern textures.

Legends tell of a Finish painter who married a Berber woman, who took her traditional Zanafi Tribal motifs and interwove her beloved husbands landscape paintings into her textiles, truly something inspired from the heart.
