Tribal pieces are typically the most economical. Carpet weaving is often a hobby for these makers, and traditionally a way for the ladies to use their free time.
Usually these carpets come to the market to be traded for basic commodities like fabric, tobacco, tea and sugar. When these sellers are in the market, they will sell it for as much as required to cover their needs. Merchants are able to buy this product at a lower cost, which is reflected in the price the customer will pay.
Rugs are made using all the elements the weavers find around them; wool from their sheep, looms cut from trees, and dyes from vegetables, plants and insects found in their surrounding area.
These makers use their own traditional designs and motifs, which have been passed down through generations. These rugs are not very sophisticated in shape and design.
Usually there are many mistakes in production and design. The makers believe the reason for this is that no-one is perfect, except for God.
The finished product is a work of art that suits both a modern interiors and traditional furnishings. Although simple, a tribal rug has the ability to transform a room and pull it together.
Tribal carpets have a coarse weave, using mainly hand-spun wool on the pile and the foundation of the carpet.
