THIS RUG'S STORY:
This amazing and rare vintage Azilal features a fun twist on the traditional check pattern. This is an interesting and atypical design for this tribe, as well as the color palette makes it so unique! It features a couple shades of blue that is so hard to find in the vintage Moroccan rugs. Definitely a special 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 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.
