Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • Moroccan rugs don’t come with a key. As with any painting or poem, their motifs have many subjective interpretations. Originally made for personal use, these rugs took months to weave, documenting a shifting tide of events and emotions in the weaver’s life.
  • A non-pictorial design employs color, shape, and composition to create a visual language and texture which isn't confined to what we see
  • A handsome, hand-braided fringe woven from threads of the loom
Origin

The market town for the Aït Bou Ichaouen tribe, Talsint rugs typically feature wool wefts, cotton warps, and lots of color.

Material Details

Wool, a staple in Moroccan rug design, was considered almost sacred to the Amazigh (Berber) people, whose nomadic lifestyle included sheep and goat herding. In addition to being available, wool is durable, long-lasting, and soft—so it’s super comfy to walk and relax on. In this piece, the wool pile is knotted onto a wool foundation, adding body and helping it hug the floor.

Moroccan wool is locally sourced and produces a thick, strong pile that feels soft and fluffy underfoot. A small amount of shedding is to be expected from this natural fiber, but it’s worth it: its high pile is beloved for its wild, tousled texture.

How to Style This Rug

Medium rugs between 5’ x 8’ and 6’ x 9’ are loved for their versatility.
