This vintage Marmoucha is an extra special piece, as it combines the techniques of two different tribes. The pattern and style are likely from the Beni Mguild tribe, while the weaving technique originates from Marmoucha, a small tribe from the same region as Beni Ourain. It is likely that the woman who made this rug was of Marmoucha origin and later married into the Beni Mguild tribe, combining her traditional techniques with the aesthetic and style of her new home.
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.
