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.

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 and are made by tribes belonging to the Ait Ouaouzguite tribal confederation. They are sometimes collectively known as 'Taznakht rugs' as Taznakht is the carpet capital of this area. These rugs are renowned for their high quality silky wool, their traditional designs and their striking colours. The quality of work produced by the weavers of this region is exceptional. Glaoui rugs from the Telouet region of the High Atlas are also made by tribes of the Ait Ouaouzgite tribal confederation and are traditionally flat-woven rugs with knotted embellishment. They are highly collectible.
