THIS RUG'S STORY:
This rug is interesting because it was woven in a 2 technique, marrying a kilim with areas of medium pile. It's from the Boujad tribe and features a soft color palette of greens, pinks, reds, and browns
This one would be the perfect rug for a kids room floor, being hung on the wall for a fun statement, or thrown at the foot of the bed as a fun accent piece.
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: Pale soft green, light hot pink, faded red, and brown. Handwoven wool.
