The Story Behind the Weave:
This vintage rug is over 20 years old and comes from Kerbia, 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.

Made of 100% wool from the local sheep of the village, Kebira carded, brushed and spun the wool by hand. She then used local plants, spices and herbs to dye the wool to achieve these vibrant hues. 

The outer border is thought to represent a symbol of fertility and magic while the elements in the middle represent protection from evil.   

With proper care, this piece will continue to last for many decades to come.
