Each of these beautiful pieces are found and hand select by me during my sourcing trips throughout Morocco. This piece is from the region call Taznakht in southern Morocco that I visit often because of the beautiful desert and feeling of home that this region brings. Using natural wool and dyes from Saffron and Turmeric to create beautiful shades of yellow and onion or hibiscus to create the shades of pinks.This piece is a mix of Yellow, pink and browns showing the weavers free spirit as the pattern is one I have never seen before. You will also noticed the weaver placed mini rugs into her design showing that Taznakht carpets are a real works of Moroccan art ABOUT MOROCCAN RUGS: Moroccan rugs are hand woven by Berber women of the tribal region specified. Each rug can take a few months to year to complete. The weaving techniques have been passed down through the generations. From modern designs to vintage abstract form this is a way the Berber women carefully preserve their heritage of technique and knowledge passing down messages in wool from one generation to another creating textiles full of life and charm.
