The Story Behind the Weave:
This vintage Berber rug is over 60 years old and comes from the Latifa’s mother who belongs to the Taznakht tribe.

Latifa’s mother cleaned, spun, and dyed all of the yarn herself using 100% live wool. While the black is natural, undyed wool the yellow was created using a blend of saffron and pomegranate skin, the red was created with a henna and pomegranate blend and the blue was created with indigo stone.

The two symbols located on the top and bottom of the rug are thought to represent a lion’s paw which is a symbol of strength & protection.

Due to the age of this piece, you will find some light fraying on either end. With proper care, this piece will continue to charm for many years to come.
