THIS RUG'S STORY:
Boujad rugs are often known for their freeform abstract designs and variety of colors. This one doesn't disappoint! I love the color palette of pinks. Also, vintage Moroccan rugs less than 3' wide are becoming extremely hard to find so this one is a nice piece for someone looking for an accent in an Entry, Bathroom, or Kitchen. I hand selected her during my recent sourcing trip in Morocco in the Spring of 2019.
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: medium pink with orange, taupey gray, cream, and lighter pink. Hand woven wool with cotton.
ESTIMATED AGE: Vintage - approximately 20-30 years old

PLEASE NOTE: Because this is a handmade item, there may be slight imperfections in weaving, pattern, or shape. Please note all vintage items have endured a previous life and so may have slight wear and repairs. Some holes or wear spots have not been repaired to preserve the character and integrity of the piece.
