THIS RUG'S STORY:
This cute little rug is one of the smallest I've had in the shop to date, coming in right around 2 by 3.5 feet! As you may know, the small vintage Moroccan rugs are not too common as the Amazigh tribes typically created rugs for ceremonies and/or practical reasons (like to sleep on or keep warm!). This rug was once a cushion cover.
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.
