This vintage Guercif rug ranks among the most unique I've had in the shop. I love the animals that have been woven in, giving us an inside view into the life of the woman who created it! The Guercif region is in Eastern Morocco, on the way to the Algerian border. I've only had a few from this area and they are so special. He would make the perfect statement piece in an Entry, Kitchen, or Bathroom.
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 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: Creamy background with wheat and brown tones. Hand woven of hand knotted wool.
ESTIMATED AGE: Vintage - approximately 30-40 years old
SIZE: 30 x 79" (slightly uneven)
