A beautiful vintage rug from the Taznakht region handmade by the tribes of the Ait Ouaouzguite Confederation circa 1970. In muted tones of dusky pink and grey on a pale orange/dark beige field, this hand-knotted rug features lozenge patterns and other traditional tribal geometric shapes. A lovely rug.
The beauty of this rug lies in its unusual pale orange field which provides the background to the tribal patterns. It would look particularly nice in a room where it could shine as a focal point."

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.
