"Glaoui" rugs are made by the tribes in the Ouarzazate region of Morocco, which belong to the Ait Ouaouzguite confederation. They are highly regarded, and known for their signature use of three techniques -flat weaving, embroidery, and traditional pile knots. Authentic Glaoui pieces are few and far between, and though I always have my eye out for them, I have only come across a handful in such good condition.
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.
