The Story Behind the Weave:
This vintage Amazigh rug was woven by Fadila. 

Fadila belongs to the Association Le Vieux Village which is a beautiful collective of women artisans just outside of Tazenakht. Fatima, pictured, is one of the senior members of the collective of women weavers.

Made of 100% wool from the local sheep, Fadila 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 for the New Year, "Happy New Year" is written in Arabic in four places throughout the rug. The center symbol and four lions are thought to represent a wish for strength and protection. 

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.
