Merlot is one of the loveliest vintage rugs I've laid eyes on in a while. She has a beautiful mix of colors and the design is so stunning. This rug was uncovered in the Khenifra region of Morocco, located in the Middle Atlas Mountains. These rugs were typically made by women as an imaginative expression of art, with ancient weaving techniques passed down through the generations.


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.
