Kamsah | Tribal Kilim Rug
- The Tribal Kilim Rug is made by women in the southern region of Tunisia. These women work independently from home which allows them to care for their families and work on the rugs around their family life. The rugs are traditionally known as berber rugs. They are named after the tribe who first crafted them over 6,000 years ago - the Berber Tribe. The process starts in the spring (May) with the trimming of wool from sheep and lambs. Work on wool lasts several months and is finished before winter. Once the wool has been cleaned, spun into yarn and dyed, winter has arrived and the artisans can begin weaving. Once the rug is finished, the artisans will have poured a couple hundred hours into the crafting process. DYESThe yarn is organically dyed with pomegranates, beats, rosemary, juniper, olive and mugwort tree branches. Spices such as coriander, curcuma and turmeric are some of the spices that are also used to dye the fibers.**Disclaimer: Although the dyes are 100% natural, there is a marginal amount of chemicals used to take out unpleasant scents from the dyes and to help preserve the colors.

We highly recommend using a rug pad with this rug. It will help preserve the rug better and keep it in place. Vacuum with a suction-only setting regularly. For stains, use a natural cleaner (like this one).
