Cacao is a timeless and rug uncovered from an unusual tribe. Woven by the women of Ait Mahklef near Taznahkt, this is not a rug you see everyday. Mostly brown moroccan rugs are few and far between! Its diamond pattern is classic and its wool is silky soft. Although he is missing a couple tassels, other than that its in excellent condition. I hand selected this rug during my travels to Morocco in the fall of 2018.
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: Dark brown with cream. Colorful tassels. Hand knotted and handwoven wool.
ESTIMATED AGE: Vintage from the 1960's - approximately 50-60 years old
