THIS RUG'S STORY:
Hefla means "party" in Moroccan Arabic, and that is exactly what this rug is! The more abstract geometric pattern is with a creamy base is very rare to see by the Ait Bou Ichoauen tribe. This tribe no longer weaves rugs in Morocco, and their rugs are becoming extremely hard to find. This one is a true work of art and would be a fantastic addition to any space!
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.
