Vintage 1980's Azilal rug with a pale cream background. The backing (warp) of the rug has portions of dark purple/blue that are seen through the front in some of the more worn areas which adds extra depth. The symbols are done in a mix of red, yellow, black, dark brown, turquoise and cobalt blue. This is a very worn, thin rug that has the same texture as a flat woven piece.
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.
