THIS RUG'S STORY:
This Azilal is like a ray of sunshine! Her warm colors will brighten up any space! This one is the cream of the crop, the best of the best. It's in excellent vintage condition with silky soft wool and amazing pattern and colors. Truly a once in a lifetime piece and so very hard for me to even list it!
Azilal rugs are known for their neutral colors, sometimes asymmetrical geometric patterns, and tribal motifs. Hand selected in Morocco in the Spring of 2019, this one is an unusual find.
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: natural un-dyed creamy wool with black, yellow, orange, and pink. Hand woven wool. (*Please note: this rug is NOT white, but a natural cream color that is consistent with sheep wool)
ESTIMATED AGE: Vintage - approximately 20-30 years old
SIZE: 51x119" (not including tassels)
CONDITION: Very Good with some edges unraveling at the end. Also, it has some small stains that were not able to be removed during the cleaning process.
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.
