THIS RUG'S STORY:
I named this rug after the Berber Queen, Kahina, who was such a significant woman in history for the Maghreb region. This is a vintage Boujad is a stunning mix of pink, green tones, and even some blue in the base. I can just feel the presence of femininity and power in this piece.
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.
