The Amazigh artisans reached out to nature for material for their rugs, such as natural wool, coton, etc and they also used and mastered the art of straw waving and started mixing different elements to produce remarkable rugs.
These rugs are very resistant and are perfect for indoor and outdoor settings.
This particular vintage Hassira ( Also called Hssira or Hasira) is made by the artisans of Beni Sadden/ Ait Sadden Tribe. An Amazigh tribe near the city of Fes, the word Sadden came from the Amazigh Word Assed, which means “ Light”, “those who are enlighten”.
Only few artisans kept this savoir-faire going, and unless this art is rescued we will be deprived from enjoying these rugs.
