This is a stunning vintage rug from the Jbel Siroua region, handmade by the tribes of the Ait Ouaouzguite tribal confederation (likely Ait Semgan) circa 1970. This soft rug has a lustrous wool sheen and features a geometric design in muted shades of dusky pink, pale green and pale orange on a brown background of undyed natural wool. The surrounding border mirrors these colours to add to the beauty of this rug. This rug is totally unique in its design and is in excellent condition.
A rug from the 70s, wild and exuberant but contained within a border. The silky sheen is so beautiful on this one."

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.
