"Austere and noble, the essence of African homes. The origins of the African house rug spring from the fascinating murals created by the South African women of the Besotho tribe, who decorate the exterior adobe walls with plant and flower ornaments, inventing stunning decorative allegories. Representing the artistic expression of ancestral prayers, these decorative walls are a supplication for rain, sun, and peace. The African House collection transmits the cultural symbology of this tribe, transporting the exotic exterior motifs to the interior of your home, adding a certain ethnic touch. The raised pattern reproduces the mud treatment of their murals, in ochre, earth and sand tones."
