JUNE + BLUE
Timeless beauty from the Marmoucha tribe featuring a pale cream ground and signature Marmoucha design in dark gray and black.
Marmoucha is the name of a small tribe that neighbors the more widely known Beni Ourain tribe. They are famous for their large-sized rugs that are densely woven, often high pile, and always with incredible attention to detail. Inhabiting the Middle Atlas Mountains, this Berber tribe uses rugs not only to warm the floors but as beds and heavy blankets to keep warm during the freezing winter.
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!

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.
