The Story Behind the Weave:
This vintage Amazigh rug is over 20 years old and was woven by Keltouma.

Keltouma belongs to the Ouaouzguiti Association which is made up of ten villages and has been around for eight decades. 

Made of 100% wool from the local sheep of the Keltouma's village, she carded, brushed and spun the wool by hand. She then used local plants and spices to create the vibrant hues. 

This timeless piece represents generations of tradition and symbolism. For example, the middle shape in red represents a finger, a symbol of protection in the Amazigh culture. 

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.
