The Story Behind the Weave:
This vintage Amazigh rug is over 40+ years old and comes from the Ait Ouaouzguite Association, pictured are two women who belong to the Association.

Made of 100% wool from the local sheep, the association believes the weaver carded, brushed and spun the wool by hand. She then used local plants and spices to create the vibrant hues. 

It's thought this textile was woven in dedication to her two children, the first being born in 1977 and the second in 1978. This timeless piece represents generations of tradition and symbolism. 

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.
