Le Vieux Village Association
The Association Le Vieux Village is a beautiful collective of women artisans just outside of Tazenakht. This Association is a true family affair. Mlouka, the matriarch of the collective, has passed the art of weaving down to her daughters, Naima and Fatima, daughters-in-law, Latifa and Meriem, cousins, and villagers. All of the rugs from Le Vieux are made from 100% live wool that was brushed, carded, and hand-spun by the women of the Association.
Number of Artisans: 40
Association Founded: 2001
Rug Techniques: Low Hand-Knot, Boucherouite, Kharita, Zanafi, Flatweave, Intricate Hanbel

Flatweave rugs are thin, soft, strong and full of symbolism. They’re also called “hanbel” or “aknif” in Arabic. All of our flatweave/hanbel rugs are made in the south of Morocco, which produces the highest quality flatweaves.
