Red Light Special
THIS RUG'S STORY:
Named after the TLC song I used to sing so loud and proud, but had no idea what the meaning was behind it! Oops! This rare vintage beauty will steal your heart and seduce you in all the right ways. From the Galmous region in Morocco, the colors are almost ombre, with red that goes to purple. This rug would be perfect in almost any interior - it could go in a more traditional space but would definitely thrive in a moody, ecclectic, or mid century mod space too!
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 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: almost ombre - ranging from red at one end with variations of purple to the other end
Hand knotted wool.
ESTIMATED AGE: Vintage - approximately 30 years
