THIS RUG'S STORY:
This tiny rug is the smallest I've ever had in the shop! Created by a woman of the Talsint (Ait Bou Ichoauen) region, her free flowing design is so characteristic of this very colorful and expressive tribe. Coming in at just 18" wide, she would be a great fit for a bath room floor rug, or even hung as an accent on the wall!
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: bold purple with black, cream, green, blue tones. Wool and cotton mix.
