Akhnif Vintage Wool Rug

Akhnif Vintage Wool Rug


100% sheep wool with cotton warp

57 x 39 inches

This Akhnif rug is a lucky vintage find! The red wool has softened and faded slightly over the years but the colors remain bright and it carries the sense of having matured with age. It's a reminder to us that a well-made rug is a lasting object, a timeless treasure to pass through the family.

The generous spacing between symbols in this design is a tasteful choice and marks the weaver's individuality.

This type of flatweave rug is woven on an upright loom by Berber women.

  • This rug comes from an association in Fez, Morocco that benefits widowed and divorced women and promotes traditional weaving.
