THIS RUG'S STORY:
Boujaad rugs are known for their geometric, asymmetrical, tribal motifs. I named this rug "Caravan" for the story of the camel caravan in the rug. If you look closely you can see a man leading a caravan of camels. You can also see teapots and other tribal motifs. The color has faded with age, but the design makes for a true conversation piece. Hand selected in Morocco, this rug is a meaningful work of art.
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 weeks 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 passed though the families who created them, and have been uncovered from the mountain and rural areas of Morocco.
