This is a lovely bright woollen rug made by the tribes of the Ait Ouaouzguite Confederation circa 1990. It has an ivory field and features tribal motifs in red, orange and black that form a symmetrical pattern along the length of the rug. The design is unusual and very stylish.
This rug is very stylish, a gorgeous alternative to a more traditional Beni Ouarain rug. It still has the natural woollen field colour but the highlights of red and orange, together with distinct tribal patterns, really make it unique."

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.
