This small 1980's piece from the Talsint region features an earth-toned palette with a hint of lavender in the mix. This seemingly random pattern is characteristic of rugs from the Talsint region, and you will notice there is a symbol almost camouflaged near the center (seen in third photo). This symbol represents birth and can either mark the birth of the woman's child, or her wish for children in the future.
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.
