The Story Behind the Weave:
The Association Le Vieux Village is a beautiful collective of women artisans just outside of Tazenakht. This 35-year-old vintage Berber rug comes from a family that lies on the outskirts of town.

The warm colors come from the use of henna and pomegranate to create the red color, a blend of henna and saffron to create the orange hues, and indigo stone is used for the pop of blue. 

One tell-tale way to spot vintage rugs is by their odd shapes. Rugs like these, long but smaller in width, were made to fit the old kasbahs of Morocco. 

You will find some light fraying on either end due its lifespan, but with proper care, this rug will endure for decades to come.
