THIS RUG'S STORY:
Rustica was made by the women of the Boujad tribe, which orinates from teh Middle Atlas region in Morocco. She has a faded mix of purple, orange, and green colors. Her appearance is aged and subdued with low pile, but would be great in the home that could embrace her roughed up appearance and muted color tones.
With her traditional design but in the fun faded colors, this piece would be stunning layered in a living room or bedroom.
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.
