THIS RUG'S STORY:
Emmy is very colorful and intricate Zayane rug. Neighbors to the Beni M'Guild tribe, these rugs are known for their rich colors and repetitive patterns. This one's pattern is a series of intricate diamonds. A rare accent of emerald green makes this rug especially unique and interesting.
These rugs typically have higher pile since they traditionally used the rugs to sleep on or as warmth against the cold winter temperatures in the Atlas Mountains. This rug is worn and has lower pile but is still so beautiful none-the-less!
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 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.
