This vintage Rhmania rug is such a little beauty! It was made by the berber Ait Ben Sbaa tribe over 50 years ago and is truly a unique piece.
Rhmania's are not easy to come by and when I saw this color and pattern combination, I knew it was meant to be a June + Blue rug! Rhmania's are usually simple without many symbols or patterns. However, the woman who wove this designed an intricate motif that can only be described as a work of art. Meet Lanee!
The base color is medium to light pink with patches that have faded to cream throughout. The motif is done in dark brown with lighter cream accents.
Berber rugs were not made for production, but as functional pieces to be used for many years and passed down through generations. The amazing thing about this is that it means that 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 I believe adds to their beauty 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. I only select rugs in excellent vintage condition with minimal repairs.
