An old Vintage Rug from the region of Khenifra in the outskirts of the High Atlas Mountains.
This rug is a "One of A Kind" art piece. The motifs are absolutely stunning. The Amazigh (Berber) women that did weave these rugs never intended to sell them. They were made to be displayed in their houses to showcase their Mastery of the ancestral weaving technics that they learned from their mothers. The motifs are not symmetrical and they change from the bottom up. The reason being that these rugs took months to weave and thus, they reflect many aspects of the household life. When going through the motifs from the bottom up, we can make our own stories about what these women were thinking when they were weaving, if they were relaxed, stressed, happy or not feeling well... We can even stipulate when another women was helping her in weaving the carpet if we notice a change in the execution style. These piece of arts a read like a beautiful painting.
