THIS RUG'S STORY:
Say hello to this stunning one-of-a-kind beauty! The truth is I held on to this one for nearly a year and a half before listing it here on my site. I can't get enough of the warm soft colors and the minimally modern pattern. This one is from the Azilal tribe, specifically from the region of Aït Bouguemez. I had the opportunity to visit this special village earlier this year and this rug has much significance to me. It truly is a rare and unique piece that would be the most gorgeous addition to any room!
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.
COLORS/MATERIALS: warm ivory background (very creamy in tone) w/ black, brown, and warm peachy pink. Handwoven wool.
ESTIMATED AGE: Vintage from the 1980's - approx 30 years old

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.
