Batania Berber Rug :
This authentic Batania blanket is handwoven from wool, sometimes delicately decorated with geometric motifs or narrow strips, embroidered with braided silk and cotton strands. They can be used as bed covers, against a wall or as a floor covering.
Choosing the Right Berber Batania Rug
Kilim Batania is produced by tightly interweaving the warp and weft strands of the weave to produce a flat surface with no pile. This is technically tapestry weave and has a hard-wearing flat, perfect for a high traffic area and a home with pets. Originally, the kilim was made by the nomads of the south of the country and was served to protect the ground of the mosques, the tents, yurts and the litters of the camels. It is now used as well for covering the ground outdoor and indoor. Traditional kilims use patterns based on two simple geometric shapes: the triangle and the diamond. Although manufactured without hair, the kilim is very resistant because of the double weft which gives a tight weave. A great advantage with a kilim is that most of them are reversible.
Berber women, who are the maneuvering leaders of the Moroccan carpet, spend weeks and sometimes months setting up a carpet. This time is justified by other household and family tasks. In general, the average time of weaving or knitting is two hours per day for each woman.
Batania Symbolism Rug Meaning :
The Symbolism of the Berber carpet is the expression of a primordial fertility cult, originating from remote early civilizations. There is no other form of artisanal art in which this ancient symbolism remains so alive until today. This is the unique significance of the Berber carpet.
The Kilim Batania rug occupies a very special place among their diverse variety and you can directly recognize a Moroccan Batania.
