Tafoukt means “sun” in the native language of Tashelheit. The sun holds a sacred duality in southern Moroccan society: it is the bringer of life and of death; its presence is widely bemoaned during the harsh summer months and sorely missed in the winter; it bestows great beauty upon the Moroccan landscape and adds great hardship to the daily lives of the land’s inhabitants. This carpet was hand woven and crafted in the town of Agdz, Morocco, by Naima and Fatima. This piece can certainly add to the warmth and vibrancy of your home.
