Vintage Talsint stunner! The background pile is cream wool with turquoise, mint, and purple cotton showing through from the weft on the back. The symbols in burgundy, periwinkle, green, and pink are a hashed line pattern often seen in Talsint rugs. It is the Berber symbol for a saw, used to represent metal which keeps away evil spirits, or "jnoun".
Vintage 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 adds character and beauty, 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.
