THIS RUG'S STORY:
Nasij means "weave" in Arabic, and that's exactly why I fell so in love with this rug. It's all about texture, baby! This lovely find is a Boujad Boucherouite rug, otherwise known as Moroccan "rag rugs". Many times the tribes would weave these rugs out of old clothing or other leftover scrap cotton and/or wool. It has a casual vibe, but if you look close, some of the fabric garments have a bit of sparkle to them, so this one sparkles when the light catches it just right!
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.
