THIS RUG'S STORY:
This vintage rug from the El Gharb region features a color combo of brown, oranges, rosy red, and sage green - giving us all those fall vibes! His name actually means Fall/Autumn in Moroccan Arabic! He has a diamond pattern but if you look really close, you can find little people woven in too. Such a cool piece of Amazigh art!
ABOUT MOROCCAN RUGS:
Each vintage Moroccan rug is hand woven and knotted by Berber women of the tribal region specified. This level of craftsmanship can take up to weeks or months to complete a single rug. Weaving techniques have been passed down through the generations. The patterns, designs, and colors in each rug vary with each rug, weaver, and tribe – so each piece is truly a unique work of art and 2 pieces will never be the same. Often these rugs have been handed down through the families who created them, and have been uncovered from the mountain and rural areas of Morocco.
