THIS RUG'S STORY:
This faded pink vintage Boujad runner features a diamond pattern in ruby red tones, thus giving her the name! Sure she's slightly asymmetrical and imperfect, but that's part of her charm! The asymmetrical pattern is typical of rugs found in the Boujad region. Subtle yet colorful, this runner could be a great addition to a hallway or kitchen. Hand selected on my most recent trip to Morocco, this vintage rug is a true work of art.
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.
COLORS/MATERIALS: pale pink base with burgandy red. Hand knotted wool & cotton.
