This beautiful vintage Marmoucha has a pale cream background with an ornate black diamond pattern throughout. The detail seen in the knots on the back of the rug show just how intricately it was made.

Marmoucha is the name of a small tribe that neighbors the more widely known Beni Ourain tribe. They are famous for their large-sized rugs that are densely woven, often high pile, and always with incredible attention to detail. Inhabiting the Middle Atlas Mountains, this Berber tribe uses rugs not only to warm the floors but as beds and heavy blankets to keep warm during the freezing winter. 

 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 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.
