THIS RUG'S STORY:
Mona is a special Beni M’Rirt rug. Fun fact: she is actually 2 sided! She has shaggy pile on both sides, in the prettiest purplish/pinky/orange color! I’ve only had one other rug that was double sided, it's a very rare thing to come across! Also her wide square size is a nice feature too!
**some worn spots, lower pile areas (see last photos for details!)
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.
COLORS/MATERIALS: shades of orange and red. Hand knotted wool.
ESTIMATED AGE: Vintage - 50 years approx.
