This is a stunning vintage handmade rug woven by the Ait Tamassine tribe of the Ait Ouaouzguite tribal confederation in the 1970s. The colours are striking, beautiful bright madder reds and henna yellow, all still very fresh. This rug features traditional Berber symbols and tribal patterns as well as images of people on camels and donkeys. A beautiful item. This rug is totally unique in its design.
This unique rug certainly has the ‘wow’ factor. It’s bursting with tribal motifs and the colours are still so amazing for a rug that’s about 50 years old!"

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.
