The Story Behind the Weave:
This vintage Amazigh rug is over 70 years old and was woven by Fadma.

Fadma is no longer with us but her family still 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 Association. 

This vintage rug was made from 100% live wool and utilized saffron, henna and other local spices and plants to achieve these vibrant hues. 

This timeless piece represents generations of tradition and symbolism. For example the middle lions represents strength and protection in the Amazigh culture.

Due to the age of this piece, you will find some light fraying on either end as well as inconsistencies in the width of the piece. With proper care, this piece will continue to charm for many years to come.
