THIS RUG'S STORY:
Azilal rugs are typically known for their neutral colors, geometric patterns and tribal motifs. Its origin comes from the High Atlas mountain region of Morocco. There are many tribes who weave rugs, and this type of rug is distinctly classified because of its weaving style. I love this one because the cream and brown form a zig zag pattern, but then it also has pink accent tassel fringe on both sides. It would be perfect accent in any room, especially a girl's room! I hand selected this one in Morocco back in the Fall of 2018.
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.
