The Nilotic pastoralist ethnic group Mursi lives in southwestern Ethiopia, they believe in a higher force coming from the sky, called Tumwi. The Mursi consider clay sacred and powerful, they still paint their bodies for religious and medical purposes. Combined body painting motifs and animal’s footprints in an abstract pattern created the rectangular MURSI hand-tufted tencel rug, an earth-to-earth acquisition for the home.
