THIS RUG'S STORY:
Coming in hot with all those southwestern vibes, I affectionately named this vintage Boujad, Route 66, in honor of the iconic and scenic road. One thing I love about this one is how the colors and pattern switch up throughout the length of the rug. Many times this was the case if a different woman started weaving it or if they ran out of the dye lot of wool and so they would pick back up with another color. Sometimes it was even a conscious choice by the woman as her intent and vision for the rug changed. Always a fun and unique attribute! Also, its nearly square size is another nice feature.
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.
