The Story Behind the Weave:
The Association Le Vieux Village is a beautiful collective of women artisans just outside of Tazenakht. This 35-year-old vintage Berber rug came to the association from a family on the outskirts of town. Fatima, pictured, was told the family’s Mahello, grandma in Tamazight (the language the weavers speak), wove this piece.

Mahello spun and dyed all of the wool herself using 100% live wool. She used henna and pomegranate to create the red color, a blend of henna and saffron to create the orange hues, and indigo stone for the blue. The black fibers are undyed and 100% natural.

You will find some light fraying on either end due this rug’s lifespan, but with proper care, this piece will endure for decades to come.
