This is a beautiful mid-century vintage handmade Moroccan rug bearing geometric patterns with an inner border. Subtle muted tones of orange saffron and yellow henna are synonymous with the region of Jbel Siroua. The faded patina of this rug adds to its charm and adds authenticity to its age. A stunning item. This rug is totally unique in its design.
Natural fading of henna and saffron colouring after 60 years of use in a Berber home is what makes this rug so appealing."

About Ait Ouaouzguite rugs
Made by tribes belonging to the Ait Ouaouzguite tribal confederation, these stunning woollen rugs hail from the Jbel Siroua region of Morocco which extends from the High Atlas Mountains in the north to the pre-Saharan regions in the south. They are sometimes collectively known as 'Taznakht rugs' as Taznakht is the town at the centre of this carpet weaving industry. These rugs are renowned for their high-quality silky wool, their traditional designs and their striking colours. The wool is often dyed using the natural colours of surrounding plants such as saffron, madder, henna and indigo. The quality of work produced by the weavers of this region is exceptional.
