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 the 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 its 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.
