THIS RUG'S STORY:
Maroc is a show-stopping Boujad runner with the prettiest bold color palette! I named this rug after the country Morocco, which is referred to as Maroc by the locals. He got his name because the red with green are the national colors, and can be found on the Moroccan flag!
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.
