Story

This piece of art/rug was weaved by a woman in Ait Daoud around Taznakht region in the south east of the Atlas Mountains, rugs from Ait Daoud village are known for their calming black and white color palettes. This region of Taznakht is also known for its high quality pure live sheep wool that makes some rugs feel almost as soft as silk.

  Thanks to the recent Moroccan government subsidiary initiatives and the assistance in co-ops creation in the region of Taznakht, there are now more than 22000 women artisans who are weaving rugs in the south east of the Atlas Mountains. Most of these women have inherited the craftswomen-ship through generations and passed it on to their kids and grandkids. We want to thank you as well in advance for considering owning one of these pieces of arts and doing your part of keeping this tradition a life now, and for generations to come.

As a Moroccan American small business owner with family roots that descend not too far from this region, I am committed to giving back directly and indirectly to these villages and keeping these old traditions alive.

Cleaning - These rugs have lasted for years and with proper care they will last for more years to come. We recommend once per week low suction vacuum sideways, if you spill something on it, spot clean immediately with a wet towel. In some cases professional cleaning is recommended. Pure wool rugs love sunshine, if you can expose them to the sun, they will appreciate it.
