A visually exciting handwoven woollen rug from the Taznakht region, made by the Ait Ouaouzguite Tribal Confederation circa 1980. The stunning background field is in a beautiful yellow ochre shade with symbolic tribal patterns and depictions of everyday life (such as animals, flowers and teapots) symmetrically placed in a complementary crimson shade all around a central cross shape. A real conversation piece for your home.
This rug is such a beauty. The ochre colour reminds me of the gorgeous Moroccan sunsets we see on our travels and I like the simplistic animal depictions that represent everyday life. Love it!"

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.
