The Nilotic pastoralist ethnic group Mursi lives in southwestern Ethiopia, and have strong beliefs in a higher force coming from the sky, called Tumwi. The Mursi also consider clays sacred and powerful, as they still paint their bodies for religious and medical purposes. Plus, animals are a very important source for food. The combination of the body painting motifs and the animal’s footprints in an abstract pattern creates MURSI hand-tufted tencel rug, an earth-to-earth acquisition for the home.
