The Story Behind the Weave:This vintage Berber rug is over 50 years old and comes from the El Kasbah village which is part of the Tazenakht tribe. This rug belonged to Naima’s mother-in-law. She believes it took her two months to weave. Her mother-in-law cleaned, spun, and dyed all of the yarn herself using 100% live wool. She used henna, pomegranate skin, alfalfa and lots of saffron to create the colors of the rug.
Due to the age of this piece, you will find some light fraying on either end. With that said, this is one of the softest rugs we’ve felt and the broken-in quality is very much part of its charm. With proper care, this piece will continue to charm for many years to come.
