THIS RUG'S STORY:
Mulberry is a small rug from the Ait Bou Ichoauen tribe (Talsint region), with warm purple and charcoal tones. This tribe no longer weaves rugs, so it's always a joy to stumble upon one of their rugs. Because of this one's small size, it was likely a saddle or cushion cover in its previous life. She would be the perfect accent in a bathroom or kitchen.
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.
