The Story Behind the Weave:The Association Le Vieux Village is a beautiful collective of women artisans just outside of Tazenakht, a town known for their weaving history. This vintage rug comes to Mlouka, the matriarch of the association, from a longtime family friend. This piece has been passed down through generations.
The ladies who made this piece are no longer with us but story has it they cleaned, spun and dyed all of the wool themself using 100% live sheep’s wool and natural spice & vegetable dyes.You will find some light fraying on either end as well as one stripe that has a higher pile due to the rug’s lifespan. With that said, with proper care this rug will endure for decades to come.
