THIS RUG'S STORY:
Just like a chameleon, this lovely Taznahkt changes color depending on the angle you view it! The wool is so silky, and the palette is a combo of the prettiest green with the signature saffron yellow from the Sahara, and a stunning coral pink. I've never seen anything like it! Truly a special rug to me. I received it from a good friend and his family while in Morocco in 2019. If I had room in my own home I would keep it!
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.
