Betzalel (Jewish) rugs and carpets

The Jewish arts and crafts movement was founded in Jerusalem Palestine in 1906 and flourished until around 1929. One of the aims was to bring together rug and carpet manufacturing skills from all the main handmade rug and carpet producing countries. By weaving their own distinct designs including various Jewish temples and iconic images of Mount Sinai and the Menorah (Jewish candelabra), it was thought that it would begin a Jewish art movement. Today Betzalel rugs and carpets are scarce and very collectable.
