The Story Behind the Weave:The Association Le Vieux Village is a beautiful collective of women artisans just outside of Tazenakht. This 25-year-old vintage rug came to the association from a family on the outskirts of town. Naima's aunt, Khalti in Arabic, wove this piece.Khalti spun and dyed all of the wool herself using 100% live wool. She used henna and pomegranate skins to create the accent colors, and natural undyed wool for the base.This piece was featured in an exhibition of carpets in the center of town for visiting dignitaries. Despite this rug’s lifespan, with proper care this piece will endure for decades to come.
