THIS RUG'S STORY:
Doesn't this one remind you of everyones favorite summer treat?! I named this one Orange Sherbet because thats what it immediately reminded me of. Honestly I had it named another name and then changed it spontaneously. I love the color combo of its piece. From the Taznacht region in the Morocco, I've never came across another rug of this tribe in this color combo. It's a beautiful piece featuring diamond motifs. These tribal symbols emphasize femininity and fertility. I hand-selected in the fall of 2018 while traveling in Morocco.
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.
