THIS RUG'S STORY:
You know how the sky looks just after a great sunset - a pink backdrop with light and dark blue clouds? Well that is what this rug reminds me of!
This stunning vintage rug from the Azilal region has that pretty color combination. The background is cheery watermelon pink and you can see some grayish blue peeking through. And the diamond detailing and border is a slightly higher pile midnight blue (almost black). This one would be a great addition to an Entry or Kitchen.
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 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.
