This rug was made by the Ait Bouguemez tribe in the Azilal region of the High Atlas mountains. While the majority of Azilal rugs have a shorter pile and more weft rows between the rows of knots, this rug has a higher pile and dense rows of knotting. This technique can be seen from the Ait Bouguemez tribe and the surrounding area, where the temperatures dip significantly in winter. The long narrow dimensions are typical of Azilal rugs and make them great for entryways, or the end of a large bed. The higher pile on this one makes it ideal for the latter!
Vintage Berber rugs were not made for production, but as functional pieces to be used for many years and passed down through generations. The colors and patterns are a combination of traditional Berber symbolism and the personal expressions of the woman who made it. No two are the same!
Note: Each of these pieces has a story that started long before it’s arrival to June + Blue and may show signs of wear and fading. These imperfections are signs of authenticity and character, not flaws. Anything of note is included in the listing. All rugs are cleaned, and any repairs needed are done in Morocco before exporting.
All rug sales are final. Please do not hesitate to ask for more details on a specific rug.
