Highly Collectible Ait Bou Ichaouen Rug
100% high quality wool berber rug
Ait Bou Ichaouen pieces come from a small region where the Sahara meets the High Atlas Mountains. Berber rugs handwoven by a Moroccan tribe whose weavings are unlike those found elsewhere. Woven by women of the tribe, they use bold and striking colours (mostly with purple accents) and patterns, which reflect an older North African weaving tradition that is now almost entirely lost.
I found this stunning vintage piece during one of my many purchasing trips to Marrakech, Morocco, in the heart of the carpet souk.
The geometric design and colorful lustrous wool, all in perfect condition, make it a unique discovry of which I am very proud. It's a highly collectible piece, a true eyecatcher for your home.
