By Barali made in Maseru, Lesotho

The Mpate rug is made from a 100% hand spun mohair yarn sustainably sourced from Angora goats in the mountains of Lesotho.
The design of the Mpate rug is inspired by the Litema mural art of the Basotho, the people of Lesotho. Litema art is composed of decorative and geometric symbols inspired by the patternes of a ploughed field. Basotho women would paint their houses after they had been built with Litema designs. Natural pigments were used to give the patterns colour. As this art form is dying out, Barali wants to revive it by incorporating elements of Litema in the Mpate rug. 
The rug is an ode to the women who came before us and the cultures that will evolve after we are long gone.
