This is a vintage rug made approximately 30 years ago. It is in good condition and has been professionally cleaned and repaired. There can be one-of-a-kind imperfections, which only add to their wonderful history.
Talsint rugs come from the Figuig province, where the Ait Bou Ichaouen tribe lives. They are named for the town of Talsint, which is a rural town in Northeastern Morocco close to the Algerian border. Much like the Azilal rug, the talsint rugs didn’t make an appearance until 25 years ago, and little is known about their origins. The rugs have a single knot and can range from a flatter weave to a plush pile. They are either neutral or brightly colored, and tribal designs are common.
