THIS RUG'S STORY:
Features a distinct small diamond pattern and low silky pile that you don’t come across very often. Another thing to note with this one is he is very well constructed. If you look closely at the back, this rug is very tightly knotted compared to most Moroccan rugs.
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.

**PLEASE NOTE: this rug is NOT stark white, but more of a creamy background consistent with natural wool.

PLEASE NOTE: Because this is a handmade item, there may be slight imperfections in weaving, pattern, or shape. Please note all vintage items have endured a previous life and so may have slight wear and repairs.
