THIS RUG'S STORY:
I am always a sucker for a great old Azilal rug. This is one is simply just that! Khalid features a neutral color palette of cream and brown with an amazing abstract design. This one is so soft and silky! It's the perfect timeless piece for an entry or other small area.
Azilal rugs are known for their neutral colors, assymetrical patterns and tribal motifs. The style of the knot and weaving technique is very distinct in the Moroccan rugs. I hand selected this one back in the fall of 2019 while in Morocco.
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.
