THIS RUG'S STORY:
Khata is a vintage Azilal rug that has a funny story behind it. Meaning "mistake or error" in Arabic, this rug was actually one that my vendors sent me on accident. Well I decided to keep it and put it for sale, because even though this one is a mistake it's a cute one :) It's old and pretty worn, but still is a great authentic piece. It's natural cream base is paired with a brown design and the slightest bit of orange and green that you can see in the picture.
(Please note there is a stain on the back that slightly shows through to the other side. I've adjusted the price for this imperfection.)
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.
COLORS/MATERIALS: Cream wool base with brown, and a couple hints of orange and light green. Hand woven and hand knotted wool.
ESTIMATED AGE: Vintage - estimated 30-40 years old
