Named after the Moroccan Arabic word meaning purple, this bold vintage Talsint is the perfect piece for the color lover! Woven by the Ait Bou Ichoauen tribe in Morocco, they are often known for their eccentric, creative designs. This one features more of a classic diamond design, and would make a great accent in an Entry, Kitchen, Bathroom, or other small space.
Talsint rugs are known for their vibrant colors, intricate patterns (usually geometric and sharp angles, but sometimes freeform), and thick pile. I hand selected this one in Morocco back in the Spring of 2019.
ABOUT MOROCCAN RUGS:
Each vintage Moroccan rug is hand woven and knotted by Berber women of the tribal region specified. This level of craftsmanship can take weeks or months to complete a single rug. Weaving techniques have been passed down through the generations. The patterns, designs, and colors in each rug vary with each rug, weaver, and tribe – so each piece is truly a unique work of art and 2 pieces will never be the same. Often these rugs have been handed down through the families who created them, and have been uncovered from the mountain and rural areas of Morocco.
COLORS/MATERIALS: purple, cream, and black. Hand woven wool.
ESTIMATED AGE: Vintage - approximately 20-30 years old
SIZE: 39 x 57"
PILE: high pile
