THIS RUG'S STORY:
It's not everyday you see a vintage Beni M'Guild in the coveted blue color! Afterglow has touches of that most sought after color, along with faded purple and even a little pink in there for good measure. I named this rug because it reminds me of how the sky looks just after a pretty sunset. The colors in it are kind of hard to describe as they change and mix together as you look across the piece. The next owner of this rug will embrace its lovely purple base, signs of fade and wear, and the rarity of some blue 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.
