A textile art piece of handspun, handwoven wool, and oil paint by the Feija Tribe in the Moroccan Anti-Atlas. This timeless, yet unique neutral gives a nod to the ancestral weaving techniques to the Anti-Atlas region, and pays respect to nature by using only local, natural, raw materials.
In the Anti-Atlas, the Feija are one of the oldest Berber tribes. Until the early 2000's, their village - landlocked by mountains - was only only accessible on foot or accompanied by mules. It is a village mostly of women, as the lack of work force men to leave for bigger cities. It is in this landlocked village that you'll find one of the few remaining places in Morocco where women still handspin using heritage techniques with such finesse.
