This small Ait Bou Ichaouen (Talsint) rug is one of my favorite finds from my sourcing trip last fall. I named her Millennial because her date of creation (1995!) is woven right in! I love the simple pattern and the hints of fuchsia pink and teal.
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 up to 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: Cream, brown, teal, baby pink. Hand knotted cotton & wool mix.**please note: this rug is NOT stark white, but more of a creamy background :)
