The Story Behind the Weave:
This vintage rug is over 80 years old and comes from Kerbia's family, the leader of the Timnay Association.

Originally from Tiouine, a village located 20 km southeast of Ouarzazate, she now lives in Taznakht with her husband and three children.

This 80+ year old rug comes from Ahemd, Kerbia's husbands Grandma. While he doesn't know much about his Inna Hnni (Grandma in Amazigh) his Mom believes she used wool from local sheep and local plants, spices and herbs to dye the wool. 

This vintage beauty is riddled with symbolic meaning, from symbols that represent strength & protection to blessings and luck this rug is guaranteed to bring fend off any evil from its final home.
