THIS RUG'S STORY:
This runner is one of my favorite finds from my Spring 2019 trip to Morocco. Meaning "lively" in Arabic, this rug has an adventurous palette of red/orange, and the hints of blue and yellow make the pattern pop! The back is stunning too! This one is in really good condition, and would make the perfect cheery accent in a hallway or kitchen!
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: varying shades of orange/red, with yellow, blue & black. Hand knotted wool & cotton.
ESTIMATED AGE: Vintage - approx 30 years old
SIZE: 39"x 114" with tassels
