THIS RUG'S STORY:
This vintage Ait Bou Ichaouen rug was an instant fave from my last trip to Morocco in March of last year! Handmade by the tribe who resides in the Talsint region of Morocco, this lovely piece is characterized by its intricate design and unique coloring. Talsint rugs are known for being showstoppers - the tribe is known for their dramatic and displays of artistic and individual expression. Another fun fact: this tribe actually does not weave rugs anymore. So you are getting what will someday soon be extinct! Hand selected in Morocco in the Spring of 2020, this rug is a beautiful piece of art and history.
ABOUT MOROCCAN RUGS:
Each vintage Moroccan rug is hand woven and knotted by Berber women of the tribal region specified. This level of craftsmanship can take weeks or months to complete a single rug. Weaving techniques have been passed down through the generations. The patterns, designs, and colors in each rug vary with each rug, weaver, and tribe – so each piece is truly a unique work of art and 2 pieces will never be the same. Often these rugs have been handed down through the families who created them, and have been uncovered from the mountain and rural areas of Morocco.
COLORS/MATERIALS: Purple, bold coral pink, soft misty green, charcoal gray, cream colors. Handwoven and handknotted wool.
ESTIMATED AGE/CONDITION: Vintage - approximately 40 years old. Some areas of wear but otherwise in great condition!
