Wool and cotton throw 02

Wool and cotton throw 02 was hand-woven and is to be found only in the Rif mountains in the north of Morocco. The weaving is particularly fine and tight in traditional tribal colours and patterns.

This type of striped weaving is so typical of the north of Morocco and you can often see Amazigh, otherwise known as Berber women, wearing these throws as a multipurpose clothing item, usually as a kind of apron or shawl. They are sometimes used to secure a baby or goods. In Morocco these woven pieces are called mendil. They are often teamed with a straw hat with woollen trims, starting with a kind of pom-pom at the top and going down the sides. It is totally unique and you can see a photo by clicking here.

The throw can be used on the bed or couch, as a table cloth, as a picnic blanket or a beach blanket. Or you could use it like the traditional Amazigh women do in the north of Morocco.

The colours in this wool and cotton throw are red and blue and white, traditional for these pieces. We only have one remaining piece in these colours in stock.

Wool and cotton throw 02 measures 130 x 83cm.

Care instructions: Hand wash in cold water and line dry. Iron with a warm iron.
