Hassira

Hassira mats are produced in Middle Atlas region of Morocco. The tribes of the Beni M'Guild, Zaiane and Zemmour produce these handwoven mats made from halfa, a local grass, and wool for the motifs. These weavings are used as floor coverings in warmer seasons, but are commonly found under carpets as well.
