THIS RUG'S STORY:
Meaning “happy” in Arabic, this name came immediately to mind because of its joyful pattern and palette. This one is a vintage Rehamna. The Rehamna tribe no longer weaves rugs, so it's always special when I find one. You can see from the bottom right photo, this one is a combination of wool and goat's hair.
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: Red, orange, pink, lavender, periwinkle. Hand knotted wool and goats hair combo.

PLEASE NOTE: Because this is a handmade item, there may be slight imperfections in weaving, pattern, or shape. Please note all vintage items have endured a previous life and so may have slight wear and repairs.
