This beautiful Talsint has a soft character. The peachy cream background and grayish green fishbone motif are faded so beautifully and give this rug such a sweet touch! Typically, Talsint rugs are much brighter and done in reds, blacks, and other strong colors. I instantly fell in love with the tones of this rug and the fact that it still holds the common Talsint hashed line pattern, while the soft colors set it apart from others of this tribe. The hashed line is the Berber symbol for a saw, used to represent metal which keeps away evil spirits, or "jnoun".
Berber rugs were not made for production, but as functional pieces to be used for many years and passed down through generations. 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 beauty and character, 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.
