The "Somaa" mat was handmade in Tunisia by an artisan named Jamila, by braiding and assembling "zaaf" fibre (straw).
Jamila and her neighbours braid the strips of straw and hook them together in rounds of several sizes to create a rounded mat. Respecting the original design by Icheraf in Nabeul, these mats each take over two weeks to make.
The mats are inspired by traditional Tunisian objects and have been adapted to modern use to fit well into the contemporary home.
