This vintage Marmoucha is an extra special piece, as it combines the techniques of two different tribes. The pattern and style are from the Boujaad tribe, while the weaving technique originates from Marmoucha, a small tribe from the same region as Beni Ourain. It is likely that the woman who made this rug was of Marmoucha origin and later married into the Boujaad tribe, combining her traditional techniques with the aesthetic and style of her new home. 

 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. These pieces can show signs of wear which adds to their character and value, 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.
