This is a stunning vintage rug from the Jbel Siroua region, handmade by the Ait Tamassine tribe (part of the Ait Ouaouzguite tribal confederation) circa 1970. It features distinct Berber tribal symbols as well as depictions of flowers, animals and birds, all on a field of natural dark brown undyed lustrous wool, highlighted with dusky pink and muted yellow and orange tones. This rug would be a wonderful centrepiece in a lounge or dining room. It is totally unique in its design and in very good condition.
I could sit and look at this rug for hours – and still find something new to see! So many Berber tribal symbols, so much life and character."

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.
