Showstopper! Sonny is hard to miss, with an avant-garde motif that makes it a true one of a kind. The pile is a mix of burgundy, dark fuschia, and bands of rich caramel. There is so much depth in the color, which reflects beautifully when the light hits it in different ways. The cotton warp backing comes through the front in places, creating a shaggy texture and a bit of whimsy. This is visible in the photos and such a unique feature!
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.
