THIS RUG'S STORY:
Twil is a vintage Boujad from the Middle Atlas region in Morocco. Meaning "tall" in Moroccan Arabic, this is the biggest and baddest runner I've ever come across! Its size is utterly ridiculous (5x17!), so of course I had to have it. But with those pretty purples, pinks, and black tones, how could one resist??
The symmetric pattern is a nice touch to this rug! It would be stunning in a long rectangular room or hallway.
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: Purple, pinks, light pink, black. Hand knotted wool.
ESTIMATED AGE: Vintage - 30-40 years approx.
