Handwoven Taznakht Berber Glaoui Moroccan Rug 160 x 70cm
This is a beautiful 100% wool handmade Moroccan Berber Glaoui rug from Taznakht, a small Berber region in Morocco. Glaoui rugs combine three different techniques - flatweaving, knotting and embroidery - to produce rugs with a complex design featuring tratitional berber motifs. The wool is coloured with vegetable dyes in cream, orange, red, yellow, blue, olive green and burgundy. This rug features stripes of different colours with woven, embroidered and knotted square zig-zag and flower designs, with a narrow knotted square zig-zag border.
It is woven by skilled artisans using a traditional hand loom, so only has tassels on one side, which are formed from the excess warp threads - there are loops on the other side, where the weaving is started from. Additionally, the rug can be used on the reverse side.
This a unique item, and a work of art - no two rugs are the same - and will make a unique statement in your home, whether it complements your shabby chic or ethnically-inspired boho decor or is a contrast to your neutral colour palette.
