The Story Behind the Weave:
This rug is from a beautiful collective of women artisans just outside of Tazenakht.

This weaving style is called Boucherouite.

Boucherouite (pronounced boo-shay-reet) rugs were not originally intended to be sold as they were mostly used by the Berbers in their own homes, as modest carpets. Some called them 'rag rugs' as they are made of various recycled pre-used clothing or textile scraps.

This piece is a combination of wool and fabric. Wool is used for the base/loom while fabric is used for the decorative weave. 

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