The Story Behind the Weave:
The Association Le Vieux Village is a beautiful collective of women artisans just outside of Tazenakht, a town known for its weaving history.

This 20+ year-old vintage rug comes from the village that Fatima was born and raised in and where her extended relatives still live.

This vintage beauty was originally woven by Fatima’s aunt and has been passed down through the generations. Her aunt cleaned, spun and dyed all of the wool herself using 100% live sheep’s wool.  

Fatima has brought this enduring vintage piece to the association so the other weavers could sell it on families behalf. 

You will find some light fraying on either end due the rug’s lifespan, but with proper care, this rug will endure for decades to come
