THIS RUG'S STORY:
Hariq is a unique Azilal rug. Most Azilals have a creamy base, but this one has bold red tones. Hariq means "blaze" in Arabic, thus being named for its stunning rich colors of red with taupe, orange, and hints of green. The design is special, featuring an intricate pattern of abstract forms, and the pile alternates between low and medium. Such a great piece with so much character!
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.
