This Ait Bou Ichaouen piece has a deep berry base, with accents of black, orange, mint and lavender. The pattern is made of irregular diamonds and triangles, with imperfect yet balanced smaller symbols placed throughout the rug. It is bold, both in color and pattern, and would be a timeless statement piece in any room it landed in.
Ait Bou Ichaouen rugs are known for featuring less traditional symbols, and more artistic expressions. They are avant-garde in the world of Berber rugs. Though each completely different, they have a certain rebellious charm to them that sets them apart and has made them highly collectible.
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.
