Circa 2001. This vintage Glaoui runner has a soft faded base and features a beautiful mix of cascading hues. The wool is dyed using natural ingredients including madder, saffron and Indigo, which is a method still used today in the region of Glaoua, Morocco, and gives the rugs a unique palate that shifts in intensity and saturation.
Vintage Moroccan rugs are collectable canvases, originally made by hand by Amazigh women over the course of months, sometimes years. Originally woven to protect families from the harsh mountain winters and passed down through generations. Each piece is unique with colours and patterns that are emblematic of the tribe that it is from, and symbolises the identity of the woman who made it.
Each of our rugs has a story that started long before its arrival to Moussem and may show imperfections, crooked lines and asymmetrical compositions that are both geometric and soulful. Some older rugs may show signs of wear, repairs or fading, these imperfections are signs of authenticity and character, not flaws.
