Andreas von Chrzanowski aka CASE, member of the renowned “Maclaim Crew” and known for his incredibly photo-realistic street art was recently in Morocco for Jidar Street Art Festival, for which he painted this magnificent mural.
Titled ‘The Moroccan Weaver of Rugs’ the new mural is a tribute to Moroccan craftsmanship showing the process of rug-weaving in the hands of a skilled artisan.

Morocco is a beautiful country, not only famous for its beautiful beaches, traditional music, delicious cuisine and interesting history, but also by its stunning hand-woven rugs. Highly prized by collectors in the West, Moroccan rugs own a exotic beauty characterised by the simplicity of the patterns and the variety of their colours. The designs that most frequently appear in Moroccan rugs are traditional and ancient, passed down from weaver to weaver giving shape to a long lasting tradition.
