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 Originally made for personal use, these rugs took months to weave, documenting a shifting tide of events and emotions in the weaver’s life.
  • An absolute classic, diamond-based designs create a beautiful and dynamic field of geometric shapes
  • A lion's paw symbolizes strength and protection against ill will
  • The edges of this rug have been hand-finished with a weft-wrapped double selvedge. This natural border, visible on both front and back, is thoughtfully added to reinforce the edge of the rug where it can start to unravel over time, transforming the weakest part into the strongest.
  • A handsome, hand-braided fringe woven from threads of the loom
  • An eight-pointed star symbolizes the feminine and fertility
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 underfoot. Having stood the test of time, this hand-processed wool has reacted to its various environments, acquiring an untamed, nubby look and feel.
