This is Fatima’s 6th rug with reWoven. She started this project in September and finished on December 3rd 2019. This was a special rug for me as I would often walk in on her training her daughter in law Naibe in the craft of rug weaving. I learned a lot about Fatima as she wove this rug. On a couple of occasions I sat down at the kitchen table as she tied her knots and answered my many questions. She explained that when she was a child everyone lived together in a small home. She remembers living cozy with her sisters, brothers, uncles, parents and grandparents. She remembered being young and staying up late to help her mother weave at the loom. During those days she would often ask her grandmother to tell her stories in order to keep her awake while she wove. When the weaving was over she would curl up with her grandmother in bed and ask her to tell her stories to help her sleep. There is no doubt many of Fatima’s memories woven into this rug!
