The Story Behind the Weave:
This vintage Berber rug is over 50 years old and comes from the Ait Daoud village which sits just outside Tazenakht.

This rug belonged to the neighbors of Mlouka, pictured, who is the matriarch of a collective women weavers.

This vintage rug was made from 100% sheep’s wool. While the black and white is undyed, natural wool, the pop of color on the fringe was created using a blend of saffron and pomegranate skin.  

Due to the age of this piece, you will find some light fraying on either end. With that said, this is one of the softest rugs we’ve felt and the broken-in quality is very much part of its charm. With proper care, this piece will continue to charm for many years to come.
