Vintage Talsint Runner

Age: Approximately 25 years
This soft, plush runner has a cream background with the trademark Talsint hashed-lines in periwinkle blue. The pattern is outlined in green, lilac and yellow, with a black border on the long sides of the rug. The hashed-line is the Berber symbol for a saw, used to represent metal which keeps away evil spirits, or "jnoun".
Vintage Berber rugs were not made for production, but as functional pieces to be used for many years and passed down through generations. All the beautiful colors and patterns used have a true meaning behind them that are personal expressions of the woman who made it. These pieces can show signs of wear which adds character and beauty, while telling a story about where they were before June + Blue. All rugs are cleaned, and any repairs needed are done in Morocco before shipment.
