The Story Behind the Weave:
This vintage Amazigh rug is over 30 years old and was woven by Ghaita.

Ghaita belongs to the Ouaouzguiti Association which is made up of ten villages and has been around for eight decades. Fatima and Aicha, two of the leaders or the association are pictured and explained more about the history of the rug.

Made of 100% wool, Ghaita carded, brushed and spun the wool by hand. She then used local plants and spices to create the neutral hues. 

In more traditional vintage rug design, the symbolism is often a wish or depiction of the artisan’s life. 

Due to the age of this piece, you will find some light fraying, with that said, with proper care this piece will continue to charm for many years to come.
